Envoy is a messenger written in Java. On this page, the project is explained for different user groups.
To use Envoy to join an existing server, download the client from the release page.
When starting it for the first time, you can register yourself at a server of your choice. After connecting to the server, you can add other users to your contact list and send them messages.
To chat with multiple users at once, you can create a group. If you want to transfer a file to another user, you can attach it to a message.
On the settings page some convenience features can be configured, as well as the color theme.
