the audio quality is SUPERB (better than phone) if you use good headphones like sennheiser
a disadvantage is the reverb that mumble can not cancel.
IMHO if your server / clients is not hacked… it is assumed private and encrypted.
it is a little confusing:
it is highly advised to use headphones or headsets! (reverb!)
You all know TeamSpeak? No? World of Warcraft Gamers use this tool every day.
Also Telegram (Pavel flees from Russia) says it is respecting privacy more than others (i hope so, it’s been highly attacked on NSA-Wikipedia so i guess it’s good :-D)
Almost ANY laptop has an in-build microphone. (even my 10 year old fujitsu-siemens Amilo Pro has… and Linux Debian runs well with it).
If you do not have a phone flatrate… but you have WIFI… you can do AudioChat IN VERY HIGH AUDIO QUALITY (better than phone) and you can setup your own (linux of course ;-p) server in a minute via this:
Low-latency, high quality voice chat (not only) for gamers
older Version: https://dwaves.de/software/apps/Plumble_3.2.0_72.apk
newer Version: https://dwaves.de/software/apps/Plumble_3.3.0-rc1_73.apk
(You will have to install the FREE https://f-droid.org online App store prior)
Linux-Debian: su; apt-get update; apt-get install mumble;
BUT! You will also need your “own” server.
Well okay i could lend you mine 🙂
Server for private Conferences
Server-IP: dwaves.de (Frankfurt, Hetzner Rechenzentrum)
- High quality, low latency Voice communication
- Efficient server software
- Free and Open Source – no hassle before or after setting up
- Powerful API through Ice middleware – for numerous programming languages

autostart and reconnect
The only problem: You have to be connected to the server to receive calls.
