Signal Messenger App Outdated


Today when I opened the Signal Messenger app, it showed me a warning saying that my version is outdated and that it will expire in 9 days.

Do you know of any issues related to the Apps store and Signal at the moment ?

I am running version 0.8-2020041449770 on a OnePlus One and my version of Signal is 4.54.3

Received the same notification today.

Nothing but a blank screen appears when clicking on it. Why is such a notification directly in the App, and not thru the Apps Store ?


I am running 0.7-o-2020010636666-stable-star2lte on a Samsung S9+

please check via Aurora from f-droid. The buildin apps store has bugs as hell and most apps ae outdated.

Better option would be to install Signal direct from their website. Scroll down under the ‘Danger Zone’ this apk is self-updating.


Thanks for the solutions provided!

Just to know if this happens with other apps, how probable is it that /e/ can fix this types of issues? Is it better to seek for an workaround like with Signal or is it valuable for the /e/ team to get informed about this issues ?

Thanks for your help.

Ups, yes.sorry :pensive:

Hello, I had today a person who bought an /e/ phone after I recommended her to do a few months ago who reported this problem to me. Good luck in fixing the backend of Apps, so that lambda users could enjoy fresh and updated apps. I gave the person the direct link to the apk (thanks @b3pio) and told her the problem was already known and fix was on the way.

Since I updated to version 0.9 of the /e/OS my signal app seems to update as expected again. The new Apps version seems to have solved it. I also had a couple of other programs stuck with the previous versions, they were updated correctly as well.

So, thanks for the update!
