Conversations makes it very easy to create an account on the conversations.im server. Using that server comes with an annual fee of 8 Euro after a 6 month trial period. However Conversations will work with any other XMPP server as well. A lot of XMPP servers are run by volunteers and are free of charge.


XMPP Features
Conversations works with every XMPP server out there. However XMPP is an extensible protocol. These extensions are standardized as well in so called XEP’s. Conversations supports a couple of those to make the overall user experience better. There is a chance that your current XMPP server does not support these extensions. Therefore to get the most out of Conversations you should consider either switching to an
XMPP server that does or - even better - run your own XMPP server for you and your friends.
These XEPs are - as of now:

• XEP-0065: SOCKS5 Bytestreams (or mod_proxy65). Will be used to transfer files if both parties are behind a firewall (NAT).
• XEP-0163: Personal Eventing Protocol for avatars
• XEP-0191: Blocking command lets you blacklist spammers or block contacts without removing them from your roster.
• XEP-0198: Stream Management allows XMPP to survive small network outages and changes of the underlying TCP connection.
• XEP-0280: Message Carbons which automatically syncs the messages you send to your desktop client and thus allows you to switch seamlessly from your mobile client to your desktop client and back within one conversation.
• XEP-0237: Roster Versioning mainly to save bandwidth on poor mobile connections
• XEP-0313: Message Archive Management synchronize message history with the server. Catch up with messages that were sent while Conversations was offline.
• XEP-0352: Client State Indication lets the server know whether or not Conversations is in the background. Allows the server to save bandwidth by withholding unimportant packages.
• XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload allows you to share files in conferences and with offline contacts. Requires an additional component on your server.

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

1 ★All is great, but there is no way to set the ringtone for notifications, clicking on the notification settings just takes you to the android notification options for the app, which has no option for defining ringtone. this makes it largely unusable for me (or anyone).
4 ★The main system problem is that attachments are not encrypted by design. Useless without this option . Hope I am wrong.Probably I am using incompatible Linux client (Dino). What is your recommendation for Linux?
5 ★awesomeness.has omemo and openpgp as encrryption options as well as tor connection. this vs signal? conversation app wins the day immo. and if you host your own ejabber server....all the data is your
5 ★Amazing app! Runs well on my Pixel 2, Chromebook, and even TV 😂 Really happy to see XMPP supported with such beautiful design, and great features!
5 ★Brilliant client, works flawlessly with my ejabberd server, no trouble at all to set up. Really can't fault it
1 ★Remembered using this app year or two ago and it served the purposes I needed so I didn't think twice about purchasing to support the development.....Then I found I could no longer use OTR and wish I kept the money.
5 ★the app is excellent as far as encryption is concerned however i bought the app and free means free and I'm not paying any subscription costs because it clearly states free
5 ★Extremely reliable, smooth, robust and battery efficient. Easily the best xmpp client ever, and everybody knows that.
5 ★This app had done so much for pushing the XMPP community.
3 ★I use a custom server ( open fire ) provider that support multiuser chat history ( tested with another client ), but this client doesn't load it
5 ★One of the most beautiful, simple chat clients available on any platform.
3 ★Would rate higher if it would show contacts as being on or offline. Seems pretty basic and other clients do it.
