Is irritating that they didn’t mention https://signal.org/ which is definitely a more common and convenient WhatsApp Alternative for Daily Chatting.

Signal is probably the second best application after decentralised Element/Matrix. Besides, Signal desktop app now has encrypted videocallings

On a concept level decentralized is definitive better than centralized, but real peer-to-peer would be best. But so far I have not found a practical system. Briar is an option https://dev.lemmy.ml/post/40223

Matrix is working on p2p

I think it’s debatable whether peer-to-peer is actually that much better than federated. Sure it has some advantages, but how can the inherent inconveniences be overcome?

XMPP for IM, Matrix for team collaboration

I like the looks of DeltaChat https://delta.chat/en/

Delta Chat is like Telegram or Whatsapp but without the tracking or central control. Delta Chat does not need your phone number. Check out our privacy statement.

I switched from WhatsApp to Telegram a year ago and I don’t regret anything! The only problem with Telegram is that you have to convince your friends to switch as well.

Other problems: No cross-device end-to-end encryption, and centralized protocol.

Other advantages: Really good apps on any device. Ton of features, everything works.

Yes. Telegram.

It is not that it is wrong think just that it is centralised and not secure.
