@dancefighter69 conversations or (a fork of conversations) for Android. Dino for desktop. If using windows, there's a fork/port of Dino for windows too.

@dancefighter69 Have a look at .

For clients I can recommend Conversations from F-Droid, Monal on iOS and Dino or Gajim on Linux.

If you want to self-host checkout @snikket_im or @prosodyim .

@dancefighter69 For xmpp clients I use dino-im on Debian and conversations on Android.
