Messaging Apps on UT
as I am new to this forum a quick 'Hello' to you guys. I have been using Linux for many years now (as a regular user) on as many PCs and Notebooks as possible. I have bought a Nexus 5 purely to get my hands on Ubuntu Touch. Finally a Linux OS for phones.
One thing that is holding me back to switch all the way is that I can't find the messaging apps as Linux versions. Here in Germany almost all (!) the communication is via WhatsApp. As much as I hate this App and FB it is hard to go without.
OK scrap WhatsApp it is all proprietary! But what about Signal and Telegram? A phone without messaging apps has little value for me.
Help is appreciated!
Oh and I ordered a PinePhone yesterday. So I am very excited to get this up and running - probably with UT!
There are Teleports (client for Telegram) and Axolotl (client for Signal)
You can find them in the Open Store.
As for call and/or video calls, it doesn't work... yet (that's a feature that many are waiting for, but as you can guess it's not easy to get it working)
And also welcome here.
I hope you'll enjoy your experience with UT.
@AppLee thank you very much for the info.
It is absolutely amazing what the community does here. Can't wait to go all the way with UT as a daily driver!
@supersalbbai You can actually get Whatsapp to work through Anbox.
