    Well, Threema's polling works not the same like GCM, so there are some delays.

    The problem here isn't google, the problem is that the alternatives (which existing) are even more worse.

    There exist:
    MQTT
    Paho (based on MQTT)
    Urbanairship (but this uses some kind of GCM under the hood)
    Xtify
    Pushlets
    Amazon
    Azure Push
    RhoConnect Push
    PhoneGap push (but this uses some kind of GCM under the hood)
    Pushy
    Magnet
    WebSocket but it's crippled (because you need Node.js + socket.io)

    From what I know Facebook uses some kind of MQTT and home-cooked stuff. Well, to be honest I would't trust any of them compared to google, since they aren't optimized for Android/mobile + you not know if they not doing something with you data.

    Polling (even if it drains a bit more battery + delay) and MQTT are they ways to go, imho.

    Just an small bump, there also exist an Threema Work version, first time I seen this -> . But sounds interesting for business. They promise 99,5% uptime + audits. That sounds interesting. The strange thing is that they using it's own Gateway for this version.

    Yes they run separate for the work version.

    Threema has become again a reliable alternative since we know now whatsapp end-to end encryption is flawed.

    It's common sense that Facebook cannot be trusted. No true random key generation and in-transparency at key (ex)change

    Lately tox.chat (https ://tox.chat/index.html) a P2P Instant Messenger took my interest because it's FOSS, decentralized and cross-platform.

    You can even run your own Server as a Bootstrap Node (https ://wiki.tox.chat/users/nodes)

    Most of the clients already include encrypted (Group-)Chatting, (Video-)Calling, large File-Sending, etc...

    In conjunction with a TOR-Proxy it also has a high privacy standard.


    Info: Please note that the clients are still under heavy development (Alpha-State)!
    ...I will certainly stay tuned into this project
