TOX - Protected messenger got to the Alpha version (For all platforms)

    Recently, a very important event in the field of secure communications and instant messengers was the Tox project.
    He set himself the task of replacing Skype and now he has reached the Alpha version.

    I want to draw your attention, the alpha version means that more than 90% of the functions work on all OS at the same time:
    - Audio calls
    - Video calls
    - File transfers
    - TCP Relay
    - DNS Name discovery
    - Group chats

    Tox developers decided to choose the best client from the set and call its official, so became uTox ( )

    You can download it from the official site of the project -

    The version for Android is here (pre-alpha)

    DNS Discovery

    But besides the release of the alpha version, another event happened - a standard was approved and implemented that allows you not to remember long TOX IDs - DNS Discovery.
    Thus, you can register your address ie, by analogy with the mail.

    Technical specifications are described here

    Already, Tox works fine through several firewalls and can do a lot, but it's only alpha ...
