Welcome to the latest edition of your pseudo-monthly https://jmp.chat
In case it's been a while since you checked out JMP, here's a refresher: JMP
lets you send and receive text and picture messages (and calls) through a
real phone number right from your computer, tablet, phone, or anything else
that has a Jabber client. Among other things, JMP has these features: Your
phone number on every device; Multiple phone numbers, one app; Free as in
Freedom; Share one number with multiple people.
This month sees the addition of a new member to the team, you will see him
in the chat as seki. Seki joins us as a software developer and general team
member, be sure to say hi!
Cheogram Android 2.10.9-1
(https://git.singpolyma.net/cheogram-android/refs/2.10.9-1) has been
released. This release includes a major new feature: the Command UI. The
best place to see this feature is when talking to the bot at
[cheogram.com](xmpp:cheogram.com). You will see a new tab labelled
"Commands" that lets you interact with the bot using a nice UI instead of by
sending specially-formatted chats. This release also includes several fixes
to URI display and copying, and is based on Conversations 2.10.9 upstream.
We have added a long-press menu on the list of all active conversations to
perform quick actions (such as "pin to top"), added support for muting
yourself from the dialler integration, changed the ringback sound to be more
familiar to USA and Canada users, and various other small bugfixes.
JMP is actively working on providing cost-effective data-only eSIMs and SIM
cards (https://jmp.chat/sim) for users. Pricing is not yet final, and there
is some work to do before this is ready for the general public, but if you
are interested please sign up for the wait list at the link above. Our
first launch will be with USA and Canada coverage, but other areas are
possible in the future if there is interest.
This month we are also pleased to announce the launch of multi-account
billing. This feature allows customers to have one account be billed for
all their JMP accounts, or those of their family. To get started with this,
please contact support (https://jmp.chat/faq#support) and indicate the
accounts that you want linked together.
