A free and open source Jabber/XMPP client for Android. Easy to use, reliable, battery friendly. With built-in support for images, group chats and e2e encryption.

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

Features
• 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 conversations.im 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


hard


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
