Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we're reaching out to find out what's going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there's but it's a few versions behind. We'll post updates here.


Store operators have a centralization bias. They control app distribution and the OSes running on phones. This controlling mindset lets them want apps with centralized services, running through their clouds and requiring approval for everything. Which can be withdrawn in a wimp.

Personally, I'd recommend GrapheneOS with F-Droid. A secure and private form of AOSP (Android). No evil integrations included, which is a pretty good and sane thing.

@delta wow...goolag doing goolag stuff. Awful. The guys from NewPipe made their own repository on F-Droid, I don't know if that would change that


So, it seems to be back on gPlay (with a PG 18 label), but I am wondering WHY is the f-droid version "a few versions behind"?

That's a pity for those who don't use gPlay (like me) and it's an attraction to the wrong side :/

deltachat has both repos on the same version 👍
