imo, Signal seems a little pretentious in the way it refuses to work with SMS. I think Signal would be adopted by far more people if you could do things like import old messages from other SMS apps or text with SMS from the laptop. I understand it takes work to get these things done, but all I'm saying is that Signal will eventually lose out to things like Matrix if it refuses to offer superior support for SMS compared to other SMS-only clients. There is no reason to use Signal over Matrix ime.
the reasoning here is that people who do not care about crypto/privacy will not change apps unless there's some incentive. I just had an experience where the single request someone had in order for them to switch to Signal was to keep their old messages. Signal could not provide.
if the privacy community could advertise superior features, it would massively expand the products and make them mainstream.
