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.

I'm finding more and more that anything that's not Open Source and 100% P2P will be a waste of your time. No one wants to deal with the hassle of managing or depending on some server in order to chat and so on anymore.

Does not work at all, writes that the applicant is not online, just like me with him, it appears on the network only when he enters the application

It is a huge advantage that it is simple to use, free and open source.

I was testing the software this morning. The concept of the software is 100% what I need. Being replacement for WhatsApp, no registration needed, and available on both Windows and Android. Unfotunately the apps in both platform not working properly. The video call quality is very very bad compared to the competitor. I wish to help in anyway I can.

I like the idea of free telecommunication. Especially long distance!
