Hello,

If you don’t want to use Gogole Play store, you can get it from Aurora Store.

Please note that there is a warning message from Signal website if you use the apk directly from thier site:

Thank you verry much. Good solution. Greatings Paulus.

This does not work for me.
Downloaded and installed then had message ’ App not installed’
Can I ask why there is no updated Signal in Appstore?
I find life really difficult with my e OS, since yesterday without warning I cant access my messages. I already live without a lot of Apps because of this phone. Im soo tired of it. Can anyone help or better just put an update into the E-Appstore please?
Sorry I know you all volunteer and are incredibly helpful, but I wish this whole thing was commercially customer- funded and things would just work.

And btw. I am trying, before coming here I’ve been to Signal.org on my desktop and Ephone, but somehow for a normal person who is trying hard this alternative does not even show, google play is all I get - why is Signal doing this ? :frowning:

You can install Aurora Store and then download signal v5.51.7 same version on Google Play Store.

First install F Droid:

Capture

Then search for Aurora Store:

And then search in aurora store the Signal app.

With this you will have the latest Signal version

PS: If you don’t want to use FDroid you can install Aurora Store from AppLounge

It worked :slight_smile: Thank you for quick reply. I hit recklessly a few ‘next’ buttons, having had no idea what settings I have chosen and ignored several warnings. Wish this wasn’t part of the process…

Signal wants to be updated once in a while (about every 2nd month). But with App Lounge the update is possible (just tested it on a FP3).

Just for information, see here:
