requires following permissions on your android device.

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.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired 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.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

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.

change your audio settings
Allows the app to modify global audio settings such as volume and which speaker is used for output.

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.

    Maybe worked once or twice for us. I had high hopes for a video app with more appeal for those of us concerned with privacy issues and data-mining. I know there is an excessive amount of video-conferencing during the pandemic, but have no idea why we have little luck even comnecting during "off days and times". The two times this app has worked for us in the last month, only once was the video quality actually decent. The other time, it was glitchy and pixelated with terrible quality

  2. F M-avatar

    Very good resolution video but unusably low sound output and input across 3 devices, two Sony Xperia and one iPhone. Video from the other party not achievable on Xperia L1 G3311 being indiscernable with mosaic dragging and rarely refreshing. No variation of any setting on any phone or alternating between WiFi or 4G made any improvement.

  3. Jill Halliday-avatar

    Mostly good and useful app. Multiplatform text voice and video ok file transfers never seem to work for me on any platform. Does not like "advanced" network setups on local area networks . While it works well with text on multihomed hosts I have had some reliablity issues with the more webrtc type protocols. I still recommend this app in any case. +++++++

    I installed this app to connect to SIP, but this application is forcing us to create jami account. Developer should give an option to skip jami account creation and directly configure SIP.

  8. Chanel Adams-avatar

    I had to leave a review because this app has gone downhill. It defeats the purpose of a messaging app. You want to message someone in real-time without having to pay texting or data, especially if they live overseas. I have undelivered messages 90% of the time. Support. There's no support unless you're a GITLab developer. They don't respond to emails and their support on Twitter is awful. They're one of the few companies who doesn't allow DMs on there.

    Well I think this app is kinda cool(must be) but I have two big problems! First, I can't find my friends on jami and they can't find me and I think maybe you should show us HOW to do it . it's really confusing . Second, I can't turn the dark theme off.I mean even when I turn it off, it doesn't change.

    how do you freaking use it?... had to create an account on TV, then a different one on my phone, there's just no way to sign in, import contacts or add a device... absolutely NO WAY TO USE THIS APP...

    Cannot configure SIP without having first created a Jami account. SIP support seems legacy.

  17. Daniele Paolini-avatar

    Daniele Paolini


    Linux client is unusable, linking accounts it's a complex job, most of this app's functionalities doesn't work. This is just a refactoring of the old and also unusable GNU Ring application, it's a shame to associate "GNU" with this thing here, so at least I'm glad that you've removed it from the name.

  18. James M-avatar

    Has big potential, it has everything you would expect a chat app to have besides group text chats at this time. From trying it out on a Pixel 2, it didn't significantly impact battery life while still receiving push notifications. The desktop app has a rather large minimum window size however, and sent messages only appear on the device you send from. Received messages work fine though.

    no group chat, no screen sharing, poor user experience and graphic. i try it just because there are not so many linux skype alternatives. hope it will be better in future.

  21. Guillaume Roy-avatar

    Guillaume Roy


    Jami is a very promising concept but it does not support registration of SIP accounts if the SIP server domain and registration domain are different (if you use a custom domain without hosting your own SIP server). I haven't had this problem with other SIP clients. Personally, I wouldn't use or recommend an app with such a major flaw, even if I could register. I would be interested in giving it another try once the app is fully functional. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app due to freezing upon launch. Beware: App design does not allow to simply log into existing Ring account after reinstall even with correct credentials!

  22. Sarky-avatar



    Promising app but extremely unreliable. Messages do not send at all sometimes and there's no resend feature. Other times your messages are sent in a large, unorganized cluster. The same will happen of messages you are to receive as well. I look forward to a more stable version of this app.

    A Google user


    I love the concept of a decentralized network but this just doesn't work at all. In 90% of the time simple text messages are simply not delivered and are lost. Voice calls are unusable since the app apparently doesn't detect the microphone on the Pixel 3. Pity, it would have been what many of us need.

  24. Shawn Hanes-avatar

    Shawn Hanes


    Not yet complete, but off to a great start. Perhaps one day I can replace my other chat apps with this. Right now, I hope that the #1 focus of the developer is Group Chat, because I can't even consider using it as an alternative without Group Chat. Group Chat is a great reason to share it with friends, and get even more people using it.

  25. jimis a.-avatar

    Promising but unfortunately does not deliver. Every day something new breaks. One day I can't send messages or messages are spuriously lost, another I can't receive, another day calls are muted in the middle, and another day I won't be able to receive any. Things randomly get fixed and broken with every update, apparently the QA is nonexistent.

  26. Omar Chicas-avatar

    Omar Chicas


    I think it's a noble idea, but there's a problem with the secrecy statement. There is a central server for intercepting communications that is the TURN server which relays the media traffic between clients, which is enabled by default. This obviously only affects voice and video calls only. But for true peer to peer communication disable TURN and use STUN instead.

    I can't send files on both mobile and desktop apps. On mobile the error is "closed by host". On desktop the error is "unjoinable peer". When I click on the error messages, in order to find help, there is no help. Could you please help? Thank you very much.

    I would give Jami 5 stars if they would allow you to control the ringer volume settings. Its not a huge issue but pretty annoying that i cant control that (set to mute/vibrate/turn up down volume). otherwise i havent had to many issues and its pretty easy to use.

    Great UI/UX. BUT it is constantly crashing and quitting in mid video call. It hangs up and lags. It doesn't even want to successfully make calls half the time. The app looks nice but that's all. It has no functionality outside of a good design.

  30. Ivan Kulikov-avatar

    Ivan Kulikov


    great idea, but... I hear my peer, but my peer doesn't hear me at all (all permissions needed are ON on my side btw). Why do FOSS apps often look promising, but what is most important about them all the time not working? it hurts.

  31. Dmytro Boiko-avatar

    seems like the app is in pre alpha state - some very basic functionality is there, but it is not ready for day to day usage + it is crashing from time to time.

    I tried using Ring last year and found it to be lacking - but trying it recently, it has been a pleasure to use. The app is lightweight and loads instantly, no matter what I load into. Switching between instant messages and calls is instant. I held a video call last night for over 3 hours and it held up very well on a fairly unreliable network. Overall the major missing feature is group chat and calling, but for what it does now it works surprisingly well.

    It must be a bug, but this app consistently uses extreme amounts of battery when idle. When I examined why it was eating so much battery, it looks as if this app had the camera on for over eight hours straight today, yet I have not used or opened the app in weeks.

    The company should actually be named Savoire-pas Faire. Disrupted sound, mutes by surprise, crazy feedback, notifications of current call that are so persistent they longly outlive the call and even the activity itself.

    Does not work, unable to send any messages, keeps saying to send contact request but never does. Unable to link device with desktop account and device account cannot send messages to the desktop account, but desktop account can send messages to device no problem. Linking account fails silently and returns to manage accounts tab. No way of logging into existing accounts either. This is not usable in this form, please work on it or stop advertising cross-platform compatibility!

    Annoying to set up, user names and passwords are a barrier to entry for most. It then spends all of its time with account problems it's unable to connect. Trying to send a chat request is mostly broken and guess work as it doesn't make it clear if you've added someone it not. I do hope that it gets fixed we need an open source alternative to whatsapp free from Facebook, but it needs to be easier to set up and use

    Be sure to limit background data for this app in your Android settings after installation *especially* if you're not using the app regularly. Not sure if this is intended behavior or not - I may file a bug report on it as it consumed 16GB of mobile data in a month.
