The official website is

It aims to make XMPP into a more viable alternative to Whatsapp etc by providing consistency in design and terminology.

(It's sort of how Mastodon made ActivityPub more mainstream, by using consistency to make it clear the instances are part of one network.)

@MrClon It's Jabber/XMPP. You have plethora of clients for many platforms, they don't have to be snikket-branded.

@brie so, what benefit i get for all this snikket? For desktop users it's just another XMPP server?


@MrClon @brie

The benefit isn't technical, it's userbase. If Snikket can convince more people to join XMPP, then current XMPP users will have more people to communicate with on the network.

It's like Mastodon made a cleaner and easier way to use the Fediverse, which drew millions of users to it, which benefitted people on non-Mastodon Fediverse instances too.
