Reply to comment by celebratedrecluse in signal.png by celebratedrecluse

nothing stops you (edit: as in "someone") from writing an xmpp client which insist on omemo and provides a bunch of default servers to register on (or entering one or more existing accounts)

I honestly don't get why signal needs to have any tie with the phone system. it boggles the mind

For sure, XMPP may be the way to go in the future, but for now Signal has fucked things up a little bit to say the least. nobody is going to install multiple encrypted messengers on their phone just to communicate with everyone else
