@norbert Pardon me … what, please? "You sign up with your phone number and Quicksy will automatically—based on the phone numbers in your address book—suggest possible contacts to you."

No, thanks. Are you sure it's not a WA-fork? 🤦‍♂️

@IzzyOnDroid It's compatible with every other #XMPP server, so no walled garden like WhatsApp.

@IzzyOnDroid @norbert is phone number mandatory to connect to network?


@shura @norbert If you read the page that was linked, your phone number identifies your account – i.e. it is your JID. What's not completely clear to me is whether the phone numbers of your contacts are automatically uploaded to find matches – or whether you can just search for contacts by entering some phone number. And Norbert: Yes, I'm aware it's "just another XMPP client".

And no, I'm not interested – and I see no reason to further discuss it. So please forgive me for stopping that now.
