Jami SIP Compatible Softphone.
Jami SIP-compatible softphone (formerly GNU Ring, SFLphone) and SIP-based instant messenger for Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X, iOS and Android.
Developed and maintained by the Canadian company Savoir-faire Linux and with the help of a global community of users and contributors, Jami positions itself as a potential free Skype replacement.
Jami is free and open-source software released under the GNU General Public License. In November 2016, it became part of the GNU Project.
Two account types are currently available, and many of each type can be configured concurrently.
Both types offer similar features including messaging, video and audio.
The account types are SIP and Ring. A SIP account enables the Jami softphone to connect to a standard SIP server and a Ring account can register (or use an account set up) on the decentralised Jami network which requires no central server.
