Texting Abuelita requires Jabber. It allows texting, calls, short audio messages, video chat, photo sharing, social GPS, and more importantly PRESENCE and grandama-easy encryption (omemo). All with an Open Standard like email or web that’s been around 20 years. Any jabber domain talks to any other like sip or email.
Public jabber address:
Family jabber address not posted to interweb
Android app: conversations
IPhone app: ZOM
(Advanced iPhone owners: ChatSecure )
Like email not all services offer the same features. Pick your jabber address from this tall son approved list:
All the features possibly not well funded
+ with conversations.im one can setup a family domain to use a single address as both email and jabber.
Or choose whatever free jabber server you please with the known caveats:
xmpp.net , public server directory
What features, tall son ?
