Hey there, UBports! We just heard a little secret...
...Someone said that Linphone has just landed in the Open Store.
It's Ubuntu Touch's very first dedicated SIP app which allows VOIP calling - now!
In fact, you can even use it to make regular telephone calls, too!
You can create a free account -right in the app - and start calling other Ubuntu Touch users and anyone else who can use the famous Linphone software and services.
Join the party and keep up the good work!

@lakotaubp thanks for developpers for this great app.
Some points are not very clear for me :
audio and video calls, are they basic encrypted ? If not, is it possible and how to ?
is audio and video calls are stored, recorded after our calls on a server when we use domain sip.linphone.org ? or an other domain ?
So, it is about privacy level for the two first questions. And another different question :
- Is it possible to change email in account parameters ?
Thanks in advance for the answers.
Thanks for the hype, notification and questions.
- the Linphone app currently diesn't support encryption. It's planned for next releases. Supposedly is possible with the code but all the help is welcomed.
- About privacy, here you have the legal aspects of Linphone service. Notice that when stted «contact list on your phone» and similars, they are talking about iOS and Android Linphone apps.
Linphone for UT uses the command line Linphone, called linphonec and the daemon linphonecsh and you can see here the modification Brian did to it and the qml code used in the app.
- Here you can check how SIP should work as a protocol.
- And to change the email parameter for a Linphone account, you have to do it (for now) at their website or creating a «new account» in the app and checking the bottom section (witch is actually the same website).
@cibersheep thanks very much for your answer. Congratulations and very good development for this fundamental app.
Great news that there is finally a SIP-app for UT! Thank all the people involved in creating this port.
Has anyone running Linphone with sipgate.de - I can’t get any connection to the server ...
@elastic Hi. Do you mind adding some info to this issue?

Great, didn't know that VOIP is already running on ut! (This account is nearly 16-years old - so it'll get ut as a present ;-D)
But: I have credits on my sipgate-account - but I cannot dial normal telephone numbers - only SIP-addresses. What do I wrong? Tried with +49 or 0049 or just 0 - but it does not start dialing.
@Mic_ Could you check the logs? Maybe checking issues here: https://gitlab.com/ubports-linphone/linphone-simple/issues
(You might check before if the logs show phone number)

@CiberSheep I don't know what I yesterday did different - but today it works without problems. Great, thx
Thanks for this GREAT application!
Is there some kind of echo service, like email@example.com (which is not working, was just a guess)?
I was once involved in the Ekiga project (I did the port to FreeBSD) and we were used to use such echo service.

Any chance an Arm64 version could be released?

@poVoq Alexander Burker has been working into building the necessary libs to arm64 (which is not easy).
When this is done, we could release a arm64 build
All help is more than welcome
Thanks for this great application.
It's working on my BQ E4.5.
I only need to work out how to give access to my UB contact list.

@alvescosta There's no contact integration at the moment. You have to dial the numbers you want to dial.
sip addresses should work though (like the

@CiberSheep I really wish I could help, but no technical experience whatsoever :(.....Changing my comment to "Eagerly waiting for it to work on arm64".
You can always help: finding someone that can finish building the libs?
