      Being useless

      It has a usable desktop client and group chats.
      End-to-end encryption by default.
      Only data it stores is the phone number, account creation date, and last time you pinged it's server. Doesn't even store your messages on it's server.
      This is about as much privacy as you can hope to get using a cellphone.

    In America no one uses it, but in Europe I've noticed more and more people using it. You ust have to message anyone that has it already with it.

        unified backup of all messages
        otherwise? don't think there is.
        but I haven't found any downsides either.

        I lacks features of a basic messenger like being able to add contacts to an existing conversation. Syncing to desktop is useless unless your contacs are also using it as their messaging app. The bakcup function is clunky. All in all it's pretty bare bones. But if basic messaging is all you need then it works. The privacy features really only matter if other people are using it as well, though.

      Can I do this on iOShit? The sms app here has no spam filter, and with how pegasus works I cringe everytime I get a spam sms with a picture, and the thumbnail loads automatically, and you can't remove it.

    For 'social' apps, It's not good enough be better than the competition.
    The incumbent(s) need to fuck up enough to make a significant number of users to migrate at the same time.
    No one is going to use a new messaging app when none of their friends aren't using it and very few will look for alternatives when the current solution is good enough.
    The few that do attempt to move to something better have an uphill battle tp convince their friends and typically get dragged back to the older solution due to peer pressure.

      It's default e2ee and collects almost no information on you. The phone number is a small price to pay for it actually being usable for most people.

        If you want to talk to normies, use a normie app like discord. If you need privacy, use an actual privacy app. Signal is a shitty middle ground that doesn't fulfill either use well.

          Nope. You can create group chats but once that's done you can't add or remove people after the fact. I've never understood why people compare the two. Signal and Telegram are apples and oranges.

      NFTs ruined people's perception of smart contracts and crypto in general. It's seen as a scam by most people. Making a messenger app that integrates so tightly with crypto is a really bad idea for mass adoption. I used Session and it's a really nice looking app but missing a few features

    Signal was okay, but exporting your messages to another app is a bit of pain. Had to get another app to make the exported file into another filetype that other messaging apps could import.

    Messaging apps (like other forms of social media) are only used for talking to people that you give something of a damn about. If the people aren't there, you don't use them because the value proposition is in the people you can communicate with.
    It's simply not a pure tech thing.
