#Briar project really needs your help testing the upcoming remote contact adding feature: https://code.briarproject.org/briar/briar/issues/1235
You need to have an Android phone and be confident side-loading APKs. Minimal technical skills needed otherwise.
If you moan about Signal and XMPP all the time (I am guilty) then we should be working towards something better.

@bob yep the development has been quite slow but this was always the plan! It's very close.
I added all the devs at chaos congress then had some phone issues and lost that identity 😿
I actually really like the structure of having: private chats (one to one), private groups (only creator can add people), forums (any member can add anyone), blogs (feed of posts shared among all your contacts).
@kawaiipunk hmm, I wonder if I can compile and run this on my Chromebook now that it supports both Linux and Android apps natively...
@ben interesting! It might be possible.
It would be really easy to make native desktop apps of Briar as I understand it from the talk at ccc.
