@purism not looking to ditch whatsapp just yet, but I am looking for a way to implement whatsapp into matrix, for which there is a way.
First there is a need for an intermediate step, after that there will be a way for users to switch from one application to another, by way of a gradual transition. Hopefully there will be a standardized, but most of all convenient way, to make this happen.
@purism would love to ditch WhatsApp but none of my family or friends want to leave it. If I could use librem chat to talk to them on WhatsApp that would be fantastic.
@darkijah if I can't get people to leave WhatsApp to move to purism chat, how do I get them to use signal?
@an93lofdeath Tell them you will only use Signal fron now on! As facebook has bought watchapp... Dunno it might be a lost cause.
@darkijah they don't care about that like I do. I would rather use librem chat since I have that service.
@an93lofdeath A lot of people don't care - i guess that's the problem with the world :/
@purism I got it. Happily paying for it. Now if I only had any contacts who used it. ^_^
@purism what about Signal - it is open source, right? :) might be another contender for replacing whatsapp that so many used or use.
@purism Sorry, if I've missed it. What's under the hood of librem chat?
