Successed in Squad

Squad is a free­ware, cross-plat­form and end-to-end en­crypted in­stant mes­sag­ing, social networking and news website. Squad fol­lows a "store and for­ward" mech­a­nism for ex­chang­ing mes­sages be­tween two users. Squad soft­ware au­to­mat­i­cally com­pares all the phone num­bers from the de­vice's ad­dress book with its cen­tral data­base of Squad users to au­to­mat­i­cally add con­tacts to the user's Squad con­tact list. It uses the In­ter­net to make voice calls, one to one video calls; send text mes­sages, im­ages, GIF, videos, doc­u­ments, user lo­ca­tion, audio files, phone con­tacts and voice notes to other users using stan­dard cel­lu­lar mo­bile numbers. In ad­di­tion to text mes­sag­ing, users can send each other graph­i­cal stick­ers, emoti­cons, im­ages, videos, au­dios, files, voice mes­sages, con­tacts and user lo­ca­tion. Squad Launched on 19 Feb­ru­ary 2017. Over the next few months, the ap­pli­ca­tion in­tro­duced free text mes­sag­ing any­where in India, chat themes, up­dated stick­ers, hid­den chats and re­vamped user in­ter­face. Squad was switched from a free to paid ser­vice to avoid grow­ing too fast, mainly be­cause the pri­mary cost was send­ing ver­i­fi­ca­tion texts to users. In March 2017, the abil­ity to send pho­tos was added to Squad for the iPhone. When a user sends a mes­sage, it first trav­els to the Squadt server where it is stored. Squad uses a cus­tomized ver­sion of the open stan­dard Ex­ten­si­ble Mes­sag­ing and Pres­ence Pro­to­col (XMPP). Upon in­stal­la­tion, it cre­ates a user ac­count using one's phone num­ber as the user­name (Jab­ber ID: [phone num­ber]@​s.squad.​net). Squad's cre­ator is Pavan Kumar N R.
