Sending a file via XMPP is an easy way for sharing. As the underlying telepathy framework supports it, please support it in Silica as well.

+1 Now that MMS is working, this should not be a very big effort from the Jolla team, and it is important to me too.

Even more, I'd like it could be done through encrypted connection, the protocol supports it as far as I know.

I'm repeating my xmpp mantra: "File transfer and multiuser chat." :)

Yes this will be fantastic, I use mainly xmpp to chat with my friends

+1 With filetransfer, I wouldn't need to switch back and forth between xmpp and mitakuuluu

File transfer should be easier to implement than MUC, imho.

since we have a mms feature an xmpp supports file transfer in theory, a logical improvement to native messaging app would be a option to send files images in an conversation.

depending on wich message-type is selected the options could be different:

  • sms = option in pulley to send mms

  • xmpp = pulley send any file

  • fb = ?

It solves the issue not completely, but with this plugin you can use XMPP from the share context: http://devel.kondorgulasch.de/share-plugin-telepathy/ (just download and open it with your jolla) Make sure you also install the mentioned patched version of telepathy-gabble. I can confirm that it works sending a picture to another contact using telepathy-gabble (in this case KDE-telepathy), but i could not recieve files. It seems to use http-upload, so server-side support is also needed.
