Design principles
• Be as beautiful and easy to use as possible without sacrificing security or privacy
• Rely on existing, well established protocols
• Do not require a Google Account or specifically Google Cloud Messaging (GCM)
• Require as little permissions as possible

• End-to-end encryption with either OMEMO or OpenPGP
• Sending and receiving images
• Intuitive UI that follows Android Design guidelines
• Pictures / Avatars for your Contacts
• Syncs with desktop client
• Conferences (with support for bookmarks)
• Address book integration
• Multiple Accounts / unified inbox
• Very low impact on battery life

Conversations makes it very easy to create an account on the server. Using that server comes with an annual fee of 8 Euro after a 6 month trial period. However Conversations will work with any other XMPP server as well. A lot of XMPP servers are run by volunteers and are free of charge.

XMPP Features
Conversations works with every XMPP server out there. However XMPP is an extensible protocol. These extensions are standardized as well in so called XEP’s. Conversations supports a couple of those to make the overall user experience better. There is a chance that your current XMPP server does not support these extensions. Therefore to get the most out of Conversations you should consider either switching to an
XMPP server that does or - even better - run your own XMPP server for you and your friends.
These XEPs are - as of now:

• XEP-0065: SOCKS5 Bytestreams (or mod_proxy65). Will be used to transfer files if both parties are behind a firewall (NAT).
• XEP-0163: Personal Eventing Protocol for avatars
• XEP-0191: Blocking command lets you blacklist spammers or block contacts without removing them from your roster.
• XEP-0198: Stream Management allows XMPP to survive small network outages and changes of the underlying TCP connection.
• XEP-0280: Message Carbons which automatically syncs the messages you send to your desktop client and thus allows you to switch seamlessly from your mobile client to your desktop client and back within one conversation.
• XEP-0237: Roster Versioning mainly to save bandwidth on poor mobile connections
• XEP-0313: Message Archive Management synchronize message history with the server. Catch up with messages that were sent while Conversations was offline.
• XEP-0352: Client State Indication lets the server know whether or not Conversations is in the background. Allows the server to save bandwidth by withholding unimportant packages.
• XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload allows you to share files in conferences and with offline contacts. Requires an additional component on your server.

Reviews From google play store

How messaging should be! Text exchange and none of the added nonsense that other apps add that results in slowness and other drawbacks. Not to mention tracking and data mining. Minimalist and perfect.

Pretty good. I did have trouble with not regaining connections on reboot, but I found forcing it to run in the foreground in advanced options seemed to fix that.

This client looks very nice. It does however advertise OpenPGP support which it technically has. Problem is that it doesn't work well and the developer refuses to fix it since he doesn't use that feature. The support muc is one of the most toxic places I have seen lately which of course makes communication there less than enjoyable. To sum up: I got this app for free and still want my money back.

This is a fantastic app that works perfectly with my prosody server! Keep up the great work!

Works very nicely and efficiently, can actually transfer files. No audio/video chat.

All is great, but there is no way to set the ringtone for notifications, clicking on the notification settings just takes you to the android notification options for the app, which has no option for defining ringtone. this makes it largely unusable for me (or anyone).

Unable to connect. "Security error" (fixed). Hoping for a backup chat log function

I use a custom server ( open fire ) provider that support multiuser chat history ( tested with another client ), but this client doesn't load it

does not support tue most widly used encrypted messages

Great app. The best XMPP client there is. Besides that it's 1 of the best messengers overall. But it definitely need a decent backup possibility like Signal and whatsapp, and a key export / import function like Kontalk so you can use it easy on several devices. ADB backup is NOT user friendly to most people


usefull apps

Great but 1) Stop using the in built camera as it places photos in unencrypted space on the phone. Do what Signal and WhatsApp do and add an in built camera for better isolation of media. 2) Add fingerprint unlock like Telegram and Signal

Latest versions make it impossible not to have a persistent notification. Deal breaker for me.

Tls negotiation failed after each reconnect.

Extremely reliable, smooth, robust and battery efficient. Easily the best xmpp client ever, and everybody knows that.

Hello dear developers. I have few questions about the size of the app. Why the previous update 2.3.3 was around 2-3 MB and this update 2.3.4 over 7 MB? There are no new featutes just a small fix. My android version is the same 8.0. I am curious to know why is that difference? Also when I compile myself the app(free compat debug) with Android Studio on Windows 8, the size of the app is almost three times bigger, about 17 MB. Thank you for the best xmpp app on the market!

Fantastic app, makes XMPP great on Android!

Fantastic UI. Has been great to work with. Really well-featured and has great docs about standards, etc. Highly recommend

TX dev

requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

read your own contact card
Allows the app to read personal profile information stored on your device, such as your name and contact information. This means the app can identify you and may send your profile information to others.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

record audio
Allows the app to record audio with the microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.
