What Skype alternative could I actually get my normalfag friends to leave Skype for?
>>
Telegram or Tox
>>
There isn't one.

Facetime ;^)

I don't know, but I doubt your normie friends will get out of their comfort zone.
>>
>>47327681
A raidcall would be pretty easybto use and setup.
If your friends are fags music mode will be a complete pain in the ass.
>>
>>47327697
yeah telegram would be gr8,

>>47327697
I've heard some negative things about the developer(s) of Tox and the program's future.

Forgot about Telegram though. I'll have to check that out again.

>>47327742
Gonna try that as well, never heard of it before.

Thanks for the helpful responses.

Firefox Hello :^)

What I require in a skype alternative:

I want it to replace my phone. I need a number that can call to and be called from any kind of phone, cell, land line, other skype. I need to be able to sms text AND RECEIVE texts you fucking microsoft INGRATES. How hard is that to implement?

I know what it is, it's backroom deals between microsoft and cell phone companies to thwart people from circumventing having a cell phone. Everyone has to have one, and microsoft bought skype not to develop it but to sit on it, and suppress any alternative. I get a little worked up about this, cause like.. what the fuck? I keep waiting for the real skype killer to show up but it doesn't.

Hangouts
>>
>>47327681
>skype
my normie friends haven't used it in years, it's all about whatsapp unless you live in the US of cucks or in southeast asia or japan
>>
>>47327863
Yeah, google hangouts is pretty good. It feels more stable than Skype.
>>
MegaChat
>>
>>47327863
I've looked at it.. I'm not thrilled about having to have chrome running all the time. A desktop application would be ideal. I might make the switch though.. I've been moving away from google as much as possible but I might have to move back to google for this.

I'd have a hard time convincing anyone to use something that only runs through their browser.

>>47327869
Not a huge fan of botnets and guvmint surveillance. Mainly looking for a desktop app anyway, and my first choice for mobile is Threema, although it's closed source so I'm not sure.

Are Telegram/RaidCall any good in terms of privacy?
>>
Tox.
>>
>>47327681
Goober.Its more secure.
>>
I don't have any friends outside of steam so I don't have a skype, I would use tox if someone asked me to though...
>>
Mumble, that's what cia operatives use
>>
>>47327681
TeamSpeak3

>>47327773

>Telegram
>yeah telegram would be gr8
if it had video
>>
>>47328291
Hangouts has an app. I think it technically runs a browser in the background or some shit like that, but it looks like an app.

>>47327681
If you want a compromise between "muh privacy" and "it's just like Skype" look no further than Telegram.
