        There are plenty of secure, end-to-end encrypted — and even open-source — solutions available for chat. How is this necessary functionality for an email provider? It isn't.

        JUST ADD CHAT VIEW INSTEAD
        There is no need for a new protocol.

        I too fail to see why this would need to be done by tutanota. We have other services/apps for that.

        Vote Against - we have Signal for instance. Please focus on developping the best encrypted email service available.

        One more vote against this.

        Please focus on developping email services Tutao Team.

        Another vote against this. Stick to email.

        I know this feedback system is run by Uservoice, but if there were a way to downvote an idea that would be good and might get rid of some of these crazier ideas.

        Try Signal from Whispernet, let the devs concentrate on delivering a better secure email service.

        I think a partnership with Conversations.im to provide secure XMPP services could be very interesting. They're also based in Germany, and they've enhanced XMPP to use the Axolotl protocol (OMEMO). It seems like adding an XMPP offering might not be too difficult at some point, if there's a decent FOSS web XMPP client that could be integrated into the Tutanota client.

        Please stick to email.

        Whatsup is now end to end encrypted with signal and their core focus is chat.

        Please stick with email.
        Secure chat solutions already exist, have a look at Signal.

        I still chat with friends on google hangouts, and sometimes use Chatsecure on my tablet... but a built in encrypted chat in Tutanota would help me bring them on board here.

        Yeah, this is a must, it makes sense to leverage to security and paradigm of Tutanota for messaging ... why have secure/encrypted email but insecure messaging (as well as the hassle of having to use a different tool). That's one of Google's strengths - everything is integrated.

        It can be the master usefull if work as hangout from Google. Login in Tutanota and start a encrypted chat with somebody who you sent a encrypted e-mail or another Tutanota user. Just AMAZING!!!

      • ludi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's GOT to work in our browsers like Tutanota does itself, in Firefox (& on XP at least!) as well as on mobile. Like we use LINE here in Taiwan, but that is NOT encrypted. But it is available on Desktop and on smart phone! millions of people still use XP without any problems.
        Kontalk is not available for Desktop, sad to say.
        Please implement CHAT soon! Thanks.

        Yes but please don't use google play services for push notifications, please use your existing service as it's more efficient and can't be used to de-anonymise the user.
