Joining Signal groups via links

by Volker Weber

We recently released a new version of Signal groups with group admins, @mentions, permissions, and more. Today we’re adding one more feature into the mix: group links, which let you quickly create a link that anyone can follow to join your group. Like our other new group features, you can create a new group to try it out now, but these features will be coming soon to your existing Signal groups.

I migrated from WhatsApp to Signal many years ago. Now they are building out the group feature and I am watching this closely as an alternative to Telegram groups. Telegram has become a very shady neighborhood so I want to be prepared when it is time to shut down.

In the long run, don’t we have to expect all platforms available for free to become shady?

I’m not sure what to think of Signal‘s ways of income, it may hold up, but is also vulnerable.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
