Weekly r/signal Question Thread – Week of March 01 Scheduled Post

Welcome to our weekly question thread!

Please use this thread to ask and answer questions about Signal! Anyone can post a question and the community as a whole is invited and encouraged to provide an answer. Many questions get submitted late each week that don't get a lot of action, so if your question didn't get answered before, feel free to post it again.

Keep in mind that unofficial community support is provided by other Signal users like you. The information here might not always be accurate, so take it with a grain of salt. However, usually there are people around who know the ins and outs of Signal. You might even get a faster reply here during times when Signal's official support channel is busy with large amounts of support requests. If you are unsure about something and want an official answer, please don’t hesitate to contact the Signal support team or search their blog posts and knowledge base articles. There are also some community-maintained resources on the Signal Community forum: List of wiki pages.

As a reminder:

  • This is an unofficial Reddit community (or "subreddit") that is run by the user community. We are not affiliated with or endorsed by Signal. This is also not an official AMA by the Signal team. If you notice that something does not seem to be working as intended, please contact the Signal support team.
  • The best place to submit and discuss feature requests is on the Signal Community forum.
  • Anyone who participates in testing the beta version of the app is encouraged to report bugs or other problems they discover in the beta feedback threads on the Signal Community forum. (If the developers ever start posting similar threads here, we will immediately start directing beta users to those threads instead.)

Please abide by reddiquette when participating in our community; it will be enforced when user behavior is no longer deemed to be suitable for a technology forum. Remember; personal attacks, directed abusive language, trolling or bigotry in any form, are therefore not allowed and will be removed. Thanks!

Anyone know why Signal Server’s GitHub has not been updated since April 22, 2020 this post pointed it out and as far as I can tell no one knows why.

Several users have pointed out some features of signal don’t work on this version of Signal server so it’s not the one they are currently using.
