#DeltaChat, a #messenger like #WhatsApp but #decentralized on top of #email, released version 0.301.1 in #fdroid,
now with a new experimental location streaming feature, a cool dark mode, and a lot of other improvements like app performance and handling of webp files (stickers), and new translations to #Japanese and #Brazilian #Portuguese, bug fixes, etc

I use Delta and I like it, but one major drawback is that it requires IMAP support, which a lot of webmail providers don't offer :(

it is an email client, all email clients need support for IMAP or the now obsolete POP3, I think most decent email providers will offer at least IMAP access, if they want you to only access them using a webmail, well you just have to use Delta Chat with a provider that allow to use an email client, check out: for a list of some providers you can pick,
and if you want to test the app, you can chat with me at


Has this matured in the past year or two? I tried it a while back and it seriously messed up my inbox.

I like the idea of using existing (email) protocols – and tbh many of my emails are more or less IM length, anyway – but delta fell short on execution last I checked.

For suere, it is really much better now

I'll give it another try some time. What are best practices to separate chat threads out from "regular" email? I could set up a dedicated delta email account, but I'd think my main email address would be a unique identifier for others to "find" me.

if you start the talk from #deltachat messages will be moved to the DeltaChat folder, otherwise it will be kept in your INBOX because you may want so, Delta Chat is in beta state so things are constantly changing and improving, so please stay tuned! :)

If you know about #OMEMO #Briar #Ring and #Tox you should have a look at #autocrypt

Not only because it is making #PGP "usable", but because #DeltaChat builds on top of it and turns the broadest network possible (YES E-MAIL !!!) into your favorite chat application.

Very promising.

interesting concept none the less

Also there are a Pidgin plugin somewhere there...
