Get the Signal APK from here: https://signal.org/android/apk/

I did, verified the fingerprint, installed successfully, and set up my #. however, upon subsequent android boot, the app would not work unless play services was enabled. Gave the error: "Permanent Signal Registration Failure". Anyone else have this issue? Seems very suspicious behavior given the update removing play services dependence.

Only downside is that you have to manually check for updates every few weeks.

I actually automated notifications of this via github over a year ago, very handy trick for anyone else interested in being as updated/secure as possible.

update: signal is working now, without play services enabled. Might be just a faulty notification tied to the registration process.
