Threema - Android instant messaging app

Threema instant messenger to launch web client

The privacy-focussed instant messaging service Threema is working on a major upgrade that will see its service become much more widely accessible. Threema is currently testing a web interface in private beta, although a full public launch is due early next year.

At the moment Threema is accessible via a number of mobile apps. And there is good news for anyone who has downloaded the Android client, as they will be the first regular users to be offered the chance to test the web interface.

Threema takes a different approach to most instant messaging services, in that its app carries a one-off fee. But despite not being free, the service has managed to attract a loyal following, particularly in Europe.
