Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the first public beta release of Briar for
Android. Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists,
and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate.
You can download it from Google Play:


If you prefer not to use Google Play, the manual has instructions for
downloading the app from our website:


This release includes private messaging, forums, blogs and RSS import.
We'd love to hear your feedback on these features, as well as any others
you'd like to see. Please feel free to send your feedback to
contact at briarproject.org, or anonymously via the app.

The beta will expire on 21 October. When it expires, your contacts and
messages will be lost. The expiry period is designed to limit the impact
of any security issues and allow us to make incompatible changes before
the 1.0 release.

I hope you enjoy testing Briar!
