A decentralized communication platform

Private Chat


Testing Jami left me with some reservations. Text-based chats work reliably, but quickly become confusing if you communicate with many people who do not have a Jami account and therefore do not have a username. The developers urgently need to improve this – a suggestion can already be found in the project's bug tracker [5].

When sending messages, problems repeatedly occurred in hands-on tests. Jami reliably delivered text messages, even to accounts that were used simultaneously on multiple devices (such as a PC and a smartphone). However, images or documents sent over Jami's encrypted network often got stuck en route. The client then reported Initialize file transfer , but nothing happened on the recipient's end.

Jami was impressive in video chats with two or more participants. It is one of the few messengers in the package sources of common distributions that support videoconferencing without the need to register with a service. Give Jami a try to experience it for yourself.
