I am thinking about quitting telegram and these kind of services altogether.
If you think about it, they don't really provide any feature, that emails don't (maybe to make a voice call. But I can use plain old phone function for that)

The only thing I can think of is the speed it takes from me sending till the other user gets a notification on their phone. But I have to test this and check where the bottleneck is.


Maybe we just need an email app, that has an interface that looks more like WhatsApp or telegram.

The reason I am so interested in this thought is, that email is a long and widely used system AND it is decentralized as everyone can host a server giving a home to multiple users


@cy ...or give matrix a spin. It is somewhat similar to email in terms of its client-to-server and server-to-server model, after all.
