    Direct voice calls have, but video calls and screenshare are coming sometime in 2017.

    Heh couldn't care less about videochat. Anything that isn't bloated and opening backdoors to trojans (skype) is fine.

    I personally just use Hangouts to video chat. It works

    I tried taking my friends into the light. They refused

    Hangouts is so much better because it has free voice calls.

    If you want to call an actual phone with skype you have to buy minutes.

    It is more that this is the 10th of so fad IM client that I have been made aware of. Its client and protocol are proprietary, technically it has private servers but self hosting is a bit thin on the ground and that is what most people mean when they say private. It is not supported on that many platforms, though I guess most of the major ones are more or less covered. Trying to get it to speak outside its protocol is usually a bunch of hacks and annoyances, more so than most, and feature complete is something it can not be called.

    Maybe I am overly cynical and not giving things a chance. I don't think I am though.
