Welcome to the latest edition of your pseudo-monthly JMP update!
In case it’s been a while since you checked out JMP, here’s a refresher: JMP lets you send and receive text and picture messages (and calls) through a real phone number right from your computer, tablet, phone, or anything else that has a Jabber client. Among other things, JMP has these features: Your phone number on every device; Multiple phone numbers, one app; Free as in Freedom; Share one number with multiple people.
This month sees the addition of a new member to the team, you will see him in the chat as seki. Seki joins us as a software developer and general team member, be sure to say hi!
Cheogram Android 2.10.9-1 has been released. This release includes a major new feature: the Command UI. The best place to see this feature is when talking to the bot at cheogram.com. You will see a new tab labelled “Commands” that lets you interact with the bot using a nice UI instead of by sending specially-formatted chats. This release also includes several fixes to URI display and copying, and is based on Conversations 2.10.9 upstream. We have added a long-press menu on the list of all active conversations to perform quick actions (such as “pin to top”), added support for muting yourself from the dialler integration, changed the ringback sound to be more familiar to USA and Canada users, and various other small bugfixes.
JMP is actively working on providing cost-effective data-only eSIMs and SIM cards for users. Pricing is not yet final, and there is some work to do before this is ready for the general public, but if you are interested please sign up for the wait list at the link above. Our first launch will be with USA and Canada coverage, but other areas are possible in the future if there is interest.
This month we are also pleased to announce the launch of multi-account billing. This feature allows customers to have one account be billed for all their JMP accounts, or those of their family. To get started with this, please contact support and indicate the accounts that you want linked together.
