Tox Reviews

It is a disaster in the current form...was it even tested?

  • Audio calls are echoing (terrible codec selection?), congratulations
  • Impossible to make a seamless video call, can't tell what you see, better turned off
  • Video call stops after ~5 mins, always, if you are lucky might ~10 mins

Worth a try if no other option left, but MUST search for alternative for normal usage.

This software is much lower than an alpha-state.

I just gave Tox another spin a few weeks ago, and was very pleased at how reliably it made voice and video calls with two other non-technical users.

I despise Skype, it has turned into such a buggy surveillance-grid piece sh*te, don't even get me started.

Now there is a viable alternative that extends a big middle finger to the surveillance state.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Tox developers for delivering us from the special hell that is the present day Skype experience.

Give this project some money and your love.
