Happy to announce that the new version 2.10.2 of our Android app landed in F-Droid and Google Play over the weekend 🎉
This one brings in a lot of fixes and improvements from Conversations, and adds a new in-call dialpad feature.
The dialpad will be valuable for people who use the app with XMPP gateways such as https://cheogram.com/ and need to navigate automated phone systems.
Watch this space for upcoming releases of the Snikket iOS app and server software too 🙂
@raimondaslapinskas Hey, thanks for your interest in Snikket 🙂
To get started you need either your own Snikket server or to receive an invitation from someone who already has one set up.
If you're into self-hosting, you can set up your own server with minimal effort by following https://snikket.org/service/quickstart/
Alternatively, you can easily start a new server in a few clicks via our hosted service: https://snikket.org/hosting/ (currently beta)
Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂
@raimondaslapinskas Hi! The maximum limit is 16MB, the same as WhatsApp uses when sharing media. You should have no trouble with a 7MB file!
That said, a new server release is on the way which raises the 16MB limit to 100MB 🥳
@raimondaslapinskas Long-press on the image, and choose "Show error message" - what does it say? And what server are you using the app with? A Snikket hosted instance?
@raimondaslapinskas Thanks for the extra details! If you long-press on the image and choose "Send again", does it work?
If not, please email email@example.com with your server name and we can look into the possible causes. Sorry about this issue! I'm sure we can solve it 🙂
