You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: https://f-droid.org/
What it is:
- it is a Google Play Store mirror
- open source and free
- no tracking
- available on F-Droid (#fdroid)
- works without a Google account
- doesn't need Google Play Services (nor #microG)
- not recommended: you can log in with a Google account if you wish
- UI is way easier to navigate compared to Google's Store

Starting with XMPP. Where would you recommend to register an account? #xmpp
If other, please which one and why?
