Conversations 3.0

Secure and standards-compliant XMPP client for Android

Conversations – a popular XMPP instant messaging client for Android – has been around since 2014. Since then not only have Android development best practices changed but also user requirements on the app have shifted dramatically. Features like emoji reactions, quotations (references), edit history or simply multiple images per message weren’t on the developers mind in 2014 and are difficult or impossible to implement with the current software architecture. Conversations 3.0 is an architecture overhaul that adapts Conversations to a modern Android development style (namely Android Jetpack) and also redesigns the database to accommodate the aforementioned features. The well-functioning XMPP layer will remain intact during this refactoring in order to keep all existing features and not re-introduce bugs that have been fixed ages ago.
