Wire - secure messaging platform as well as audio/video comms is finally here!

Pros: First and most of all, Wire is all about security. Full E2E encryption for all the services it provides - messaging, voice, video. There are no compromises here and if security is a top priority, you don't have to look further.

As far as I know, they are already doing some post-quantum cryptography experimenting, which is really impressive.

Did I mention they are 100% Open Source? Did I say the voice quality is absolutely fantastic?

Cons: Not a lot of things I can say I don't like - basically for private usage the only issue is adoption, as the competition is very hard (not that I find any of the competitors good) and most people base the adoption on the number of people already on the platform.

For business usage, I would say that it has everything that most people would want - yeah, including gifs, but it's always hard to adopt a new tool/software for the team, especially a communication platform.

Overall: As an early Wire (personal) adopter and a vocal supporter (I want to say Ambassador), I may be a bit biased. Still, I strongly believe everyone deserves a fully secure communication platform and there must be no compromise on that - Wire proves it's possible.

I have successfully converted more than a couple dozens users to Wire - and we never looked back.

Pros: Wire is a great example of well developed security messaging. The UI is beautiful and the security does not drag down the ease of use of the software. This is a prime example of engineers knowing how to balance usability and security.

Pros: Ease of use, strong encryption, good call quality (audio and video)

Cons: Limited number of callers on encrypted video call

Overall: For a regulated crypto assets exchange data privacy is of utmost importance. Wire assures us fully encrypted communication and gives us and our clients top level security.

Thank you, Luka! Increasing the number of participants in a video call is definitely something we plan to work on in the future.

Pros: Ease of use and security (Top Priority) ... User friendly and conveniently accessible across all platforms makes it a must have! Customer service has been top notch and completely transparent when it comes to service patches and more!

Cons: Business aspects are pretty limited with Teams currently. There are several key features that need to be created for this to be a complete business chat system.

Overall: Secured Chat System. Quickly and Easy communicate with business staff from anywhere!

Pros: This is a good, safe software. Can use on both phone and desktop. It also has an attractive design and layout.

Cons: Sometimes it can take a long time to log in on desktop, like 10-15 minutes. Also, in the past it has logged itself out.

Pros: Security, customer service, look and feel, everything here we needed (almost everything, see below).

Cons: No dedicated server, no dedicated URL, screensharing not yet perfect.

We would have preferred to run on our own server (like we did with hipchat so far).

Overall: Internal and external communication, screensharing for conferences, seeing our team from time to time :D

Pros: End to end encryption is a fantastic feature, a must for any communication software. UI looks pretty sharp as well.

Cons: Loading times to log on can be a bit of a pain. Other than that nothing wrong to point out so far at this point
