I saw this talk at DebConf16:
https://debconf16.debconf.org/talks/139/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOHeSxKCiN4

From https://ring.cx/ :
Ring is a free software for communication that allows its users to make audio or video calls, in pairs or groups, and to send messages, safely and freely, in confidence.

Savoir-faire Linux and a community of contributors worldwide develop Ring. It is available on GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac OSX and Android. It can be associated with a conventional phone service or integrated with any connected object.

Under this very easy to use software, there is a combination of technologies and innovations opening all kinds of perspectives to its users and developers.

Ring is a free software whose code is open. Therefore, it is not the software that controls you.

With Ring, you take control of your communication!
Ring was recently accepted into Debian testing:

hmmmmmm....... another one.
Is there any one that works on ALL platforms and have outgoing calls to ANY phone?

EDIT: and most importantly, the one that allows me to create account and add only the people I want and not the whole phonebook.

You can't use one account for multiple devices, so this will be added to the ever growing pile of good concepts nobody will ever use due to the developers' disconnect with real life. What were they thinking? 'Hey, please add me on Ring, and add me again for the Ring on my tablet and again for the Ring on my phone and again for the Ring on my other computer and don't forget to add all of my Rings on all of your Rings as well.'

Its been a while since FOSDEM when I went to their talk about it, but the "easy to use" interface seemed anything but... filled with hidden options that arent at all apparent, like dragging one contact on top of another one to initiate a group call.

But honestly, its about time that Video Conferencing became something like e-mail rather than many individual apps that more or less do the same thing but not in an interoperable way.

I installed (earlier version) two months ago (may 10) on :
-w8.1 SoC Tablet Lenoyo Yoga 2-851f
- w8.1 (ultrabook lenovo u430 touch)
-Linux mint 17.2 xfce (Dual core Intel CPU U4100 1.3 Ghz, without camera)

the procedure i used to install on linux system as it was on
https://ring.cx/en/download/gnu-linux

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://nightly.apt.ring.cx/ubuntu_14.04/ ring main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ring-nightly-man.list"
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys A295D773307D25A33AE72F2F64CD5FA175348F84
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ring-gnome
Tested using a different name id for each machine.
Chat options work with all three.
Audio work in all three, but I didn't test conference mode (more than two connected to talk using audio)
Video worked between w8.1 machines. The linux machine has no webcam.


-it seemed to me an interesting option. All your data is kept in your device.
-You can put text messages to be seen when the receiver gets online.


To chat is good. How to send audio or photos or videos I couldn't I didn't know.


I uninstalled on all systems windows and linux.

After uninstall on windows, it still info on registry
C:\Program Files\Savoir-Faire-Linux\ring.exe
Firewall rules
and stuff like that...

Also the data of chat conversations it remains after uninstall on
c:\users\youuser\AppData\local\Savoir-faire-Linux
c:\users\youuser\AppData\local\Savoir-faire-Linux\Ring
c:\users\youuser\AppData\local\Savoir-faire-Linux\Ring\peer_profiles
c:\users\youuser\AppData\local\Savoir-faire-Linux\Ring\profiles
c:\users\youuser\AppData\local\Savoir-faire-Linux\Ring\text

the peer_profiles and profiles folders contains vcard file(s)
the text folder has JSON files containing
I think I'll test the new version.

Ring dev here.

Ring allows for conference calls, it uses SIP underneath.

We don't yet support out-of-call group chats, but that will be possible in the future.

Ring Dev here.

Multi-device is coming soon. We will even bring usernames, so you can call "aviau" and it will ring on all of my devices.

Usernames will work with a decentralized blockchain-based registrar.

Multi-devices will require you to "authorize" your new device on any of your existing devices.
