This is the best open source sms-only app alternative I found, and comes with end to end encryption!

Signal only seems to be available on the Google Play Store, and requires Google Play Services to function correctly. So, when I switched to LineageOS on my Android phone, without any Google services, Silence has been my go-to messaging app, as it doesn't require Google to function.


signal can work without Google play service, but more battery hungry .
