Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/18

[WayBack] The messenger – Delta Chat: Delta Chat – Email Based Instant Messenger

From the FAQ at [WayBack] Help – Delta Chat:

What are the advantages of Delta Chat compared to other messengers?

  • Independent of any company or services. You own your data.
  • Your data are not saved on a central server; this way, in contrast to most other messengers, Delta Chat even protects your metadata (who writes to whom?)
  • You do not distribute your address book to anyone.
  • Fast by the use of Push-IMAP
  • Largest userbase – receivers not using Delta Chat can be reached as well
  • Compatible – not only to itself
  • Elegant and simple user interface
  • Distributed system
  • No Spam – only messages of known users are shown by default
  • Reliable – safe for professional use
  • Trustworthy – can even be used for business messages
  • fully Open Source and Standards based

What if the receiver does not use Delta Chat?

  • The receiver will get a normal email then – if he replies to it, you will see the reply in the Delta Chat app.
