About this app

Minds Chat is both a secure messenger and a team collaboration app that is ideal for group chats while remote working. This chat app uses end-to-end encryption to provide powerful video conferencing, file sharing and voice calls. It is integrated directly with Minds, an open source social networking application.

Minds Chat features include:

- Advanced online communication tools

- Fully encrypted messages to allow safer corporate communication, even for remote workers

- Decentralized chat based on the Matrix open source framework

- Secure file sharing with encrypted data while managing projects

- Group Video chat with voice over IP and screen sharing

- Easy integration with your favorite online collaboration tools, project management tools, VoIP services and other team messaging apps

Minds Chat is different from other messaging and collaboration apps. It operates on Matrix, an open network for secure and decentralized communication. It allows self-hosting to give users maximum ownership and control of their data and messages.

Privacy and encrypted messaging:

Minds Chat protects you from unwanted ads, data mining and walled gardens. It also secures all your data, one-to-one video chats and voice communication through end-to-end encryption and cross-signed device verification.

Minds Chat gives you control over your privacy while allowing you to communicate securely with anyone on the Matrix network, or other business collaboration tools by integrating with productivity apps such as Slack.

Minds Chat can be self-hosted:

To allow more control of your sensitive data and conversations, Minds Chat can be self-hosted or you can choose any Matrix-based host - the standard for open source, decentralized communication. Minds Chat gives you privacy, security compliance and integration flexibility.

Own your data:

You decide where to keep your data and messages. Without the risk of data mining or access from third parties.

Open messaging and collaboration:

You can chat with anyone on the Matrix network, whether they’re using Minds Chat, Element, another Matrix app or even if they are using a different messaging app.

Super secure:

Real end-to-end encryption (only those in the conversation can decrypt messages), and cross-signed device verification.

Complete communication and integration:

Messaging, voice and video calls, file sharing, screen sharing and a whole bunch of integrations, bots and widgets. Build rooms, communities, stay in touch and get things done.

Pick up where you left off:

Stay in touch wherever you are with fully synchronised message history across all your devices and on the web at https://chat.minds.com.

Really want to try this app. Am a fan of minds and like getting their apps directly from their website. Issue we have is no matter if the play store version or from minds' website, I cannot use a custom server. After I enter the server address the next screen just shows 'connect to nerdsin.space'. Nothing to tap or anything. Please fix. Keep it up.

The friends circles at the top are touchy. You try to share, and it always skips. It is super annoying and very stupid that tapping skips to the next person.

I get this message after login. For whatever reason it won't work. "Numeric user IDs are reserved for guest users" I'm not a guest user, I have had this account for many years now. Something is going wrong with the app itself.
