Status Messenger and Web Browser Releases Alpha

Status, a hybrid between a decentralised, encrypted instant messenger and a Web 3.0 browser, has announced the release of its alpha stage. In an effort to provide a gateway to the decentralised application ecosystem, Ethereum-based Status runs on Android & iOS. The developers hope that with this release Whisper can be tested on a larger scale in order to find bugs in the basic functionality and to improve the features of Status, which in itself is in a very unstable state.

In this alpha, Status is stripped down, and runs only on the Ropsten testnet. Users of Status will use an autonomous entity, Console. Console is a built-in DApp that helps with the setup of accounts. In addition, users have the option to synchronise phone contacts, and execute javascript similar to geth console.
