Want to use your Android phone without a carrier? It is possible. Here's how to make and receive calls using Cheogram, JMP, and XMPP. by TheRealPanzer in Android

That's pretty cool for someone who lives in a wifi-filled bubble, honestly.

You can communicate wherever you have an internet connection; you can ditch your SIM and depend on Wi-Fi instead.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call the rub

Google's decision means that app is currently unavailable on all Android devices.

google play is not the only place where you can download apps. but you need to download apks from trusted sites

It's really easy. I have a Poco X3 and flashed ArrowOS. If it fucks up you can just flash it back to stock firmware. XDA has communities so you can find support there from users that use the same phone.

Does anyone have any opinions on this?

I'm willing to try this on my new Moto G Play 2021 but I don't want to brick it if there's obvious things to avoid.

Threema Push - Instant Notifications without Google Services by TheRealPanzer in Android

[–]Drewski 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Threema is a good messenger, and I was glad when they made the app open source at the end of 2020. However, the fact that they charge for it means I'll never get my friends to switch, it took long enough just to convince them to download Signal.

It's really quit good. I've had some minor issues with file directory save location with it on Android, but it is quite simple otherwise.

idk dude, i don't think you can get off the hook from big-timers like google and nsa that easily. (not that they'd care)

but in case you want to, purchase chinese products. they're the only supply chain that's independent enough to get off the hook from entities that powerful.

edit: obviously there's drawback to that method.

Google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from the Play Store on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech by [deleted] in Android

[–]yishengqingwa666 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

"Just a reminder to all the fedi bros that Google took Spinster’s app down a year ago, citing the exact same bullshit reason that they are now using to target Subway Tooter, Husky, and Fedliab. And none of you had shit to say about it then.

You watched. You let it happen. Many of your cheered. Many of you actively campaigned for exactly this.

We remember how you sided with Big Tech when it suited your need to shut women up. We know all your talk of “freedom” only extends as far as you can swing your dick.

I do not support Google targeting Fediverse apps. But I also know that the Fediverse paved the way for this to happen the moment they sided with Big Tech over one of their own."

Good time to move people to F-Droid. I haven't used Google Play in years and I'm much happier for it.
