Pretty Good

As chat apps go, this one works pretty well, but it still has a few rough edges. Particularly, its handling of encryption keys is rough compared to other apps like Wire and Keybase—Every time a new device is added, everyone needs to go through and re-verify it, which is a hassle and a turn-off for getting my friends to use it. If you don’t re-verify, everyone in every chat you participate in will see a scary warning, and there’s no way to permanently dismiss it.

It could be way better

The app can be way better overall, there is no need of the "home" tab on the bottom when all it does is literally show everything from the other tabs in one tab. Secondly, the UI is so messy, why can't it be a bit more cleaner like discord or other platforms? It just looks so ugly holy sh**. Please do something about it. It really needs to be cleaned up, I don't know who's idea it was to add a "home" tab and use that format for chatting. Please get rid of the bottom tabs and add a sandwich menu to the side like discord. Open source is so amazing, but it's always the UI designers that mess it up. This app has soo much potential!

Works fantastically but needs 1 bug fix

Works fantastically but needs 1 bug fix. Jitsi video calls in a room call the phone and video and audio work fine. If you start a call from the iPhone to the people in the room - the room sees a notice about a call but no call comes in and no way to accept it in Chrome
