Skype adds screen sharing to its iOS and Android apps | Engadget

Having spruced up its web service, Skype is turning its attention to mobile. Its latest beta feature adds screen sharing to its iOS and Android apps. It may not seem as significant as Skype's other recent iterations, including group calls for 50 people (up from 25) and background blur in video calls, but it gives workers and friends another reason to stay locked in the app.

Skype is owned by Microsoft and all its calls pass through MS servers. No one knows what MS does with the data it gathers.

Jami is a free open alternative with a distributed network that doesn't use servers. Calls connect directly between users peer-to-peer. It's very easy to use, you don't need to be a nerd, so it's a good privacy-friendly replacement for Skype.

Their website is at:
https://jami.net

You can follow Jami on the Fediverse at:
@Jami

The app is available for all major platforms including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.

Back to the future: it has (yet again) become impossible to join a Skype audio or video call without installing untrusted proprietary software on my computer: Microsoft has decided that Skype for Web should only make calls in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Previously I used Chromium to do it if I needed, but now even Chromium doesn't satisfy Microsoft's condition now: the calling functionality is not available.

And I really, really don't trust Google (or Microsoft) enough to allow their closed-source software to run on my personal computer. Sorry.

Together with the suspicious "CallLogs" situation and how it develops, that makes a pretty good personal reason to abandon using it.

I've been quite critical of #matrix for some of its choices and for all it's bluster against #xmpp (some merited, some overblown, and some equally applicable to matrix today...), but I still think it's worth encouraging it--and any other secure foss messaging protocols--else we fall back on #whatsapp, #skype, #hangouts clusterfuck. From the other perspective: @matrix, you've made a lot of ambitious promises. I hope you don't let us down.

Jitsi - free alternative to Skype


one of those things of which i wonder how i never knew about it before: #Jitsi Meet, an open-source, wholly free video and audio #chat app/website. Even possiblity for calling in by phone into meetings. https://meet.jit.si Also cool: no need for a login, so it can be all anonymous. Just enter a name for your meeting and start! #videochat #audiochat #skype


 
It is really not helpful if a #messenger just tells "Could not send message" and you have to manually press retry till it does. How about you implement A FUCKING RETRY DURATION THAT IS ACCEPTABLE LONG? Give the user a feedback after a longer time (10 minutes) and ask if the user still wants to send the message, also give the users an option to cancel the sending. Why is is so hard to make it usable? #Signal #Skype

#wire #telegram #whatsapp #skype #jitsi

Wire (https://wire.com) est une alternative solide à Skype, Whatsapp, Telegram... Il permet de faire du chat et de la visio.conf entre autre et je dois dire que je le préfère même jitsi sur ce dernier point.

La phase de test est très positive. Et surtout, mes ami.e.s me suivent. Et ça, ça veut dire 2 choses
- c'est facile à installer
- le message rentre.

Licence GPL, multi-plateformes, inscription sans numéro de téléphone, crypté de bout en bout - à 2 ou en groupe - for en suisse, gratuit, finition visuelle agréable... Quelques améliorations restent à mettre en place mais globalement, je ne peux que le recommander.

Pour moi, en tout cas, je quitte avec plaisir telegram... à bon entendeur.
