Someone here uses whatsapp? wouldn't be cool to have a whatsapp group? What is the limit of a whatsapp group??? Hmm...

Stupid question: what's a "whatsapp"? That's a phone app, right?

I have a really crummy phone with no data, so I don't use many apps. :-X

A single group can hold up to 256 people at a time. With the creator the first admin. He can add people manually by phone numbers and also allow some sort of self-service addition to the group by use of a Group URL. Anyone with this URL can add herself to the chat.

Any benefit to using WhatsApp over something like Skype, Discord, etc?

I wouldn't mind Discord actually.

Windows 8 is a toned, stylish, polished professional athlete. But it’s wearing clown makeup, and that creates a serious image problem. ~PCWorld Article

I refuse to install apps on my phone.

Discord would be nice.

Whatsapp doesn't support Windows 7 (or tablets), so it doesn't support me.

IRC is the future!

... though I would also like a libre Skype replacement. Apparently, the FSF has agreed for a decade or so :-X. Ekiga fits the bill for PC but doesn't support phones yet. It seems the Snowden-endorsed Open Whisper Systems has a desktop Chrome app companion to their mobile app, Signal... Perhaps that's the best option.

WhatsApp is proprietary and, while I'm sure it's very good, is simply not an option I am willing to consider.

Edit: Linphone shows great promise (and I am always on the lookout for more "catastrophic" software).

It'd be interesting to hear what you godless heathens sound like, on Discord.

It is! I use it almost daily for years and I've even created an #allegro channel in the network I use... but I'm alone. :(

I'm clearly in support already. =D

Aye!

Discord also supports TEXT chat, by the way.

You should totally do a Discord. It's fantastic.

It's called #allegro. ;)

I thought something hosted on a.cc.. Oh well, IRC is good enough I guess.
