A new category (and very close poll) last year.

Yes, I too was expecting to see Zoom, but I guess it's regarded as Social Media.

I use only MS Teams, but that is definitely not the "Application of the Year".

We've succesfully been using Jitsi Meet at work(*), and I sometimes see it used embedded (?) in other professional surroundings.

(*) See this list: https://jitsi.github.io/handbook/doc...nity-instances

It's not on the list, but IRC/Hexchat is still the best

My LUG has been using jitsi for meetings for quite a while in these viral times. Our unofficial leader did quite a bit of research before selecting it.

It works very nicely and it's open source.

Cool Team Communication Application of the Year

Slack seems to get the job done

With Gajim (or Conversations on Android, or some iOS application) you could have OMEMO based end-to-end encryption on top of XMPP a.k.a. Jabber. I do not know if Pidgin supports that. There are also many XMPP server implementations available in GNU/Linux distributions, and some of them are small enough to run on low-end hardware such as Raspberry Pi.

I am forced to use Slack at work, but I will not vote for it, because it is not my choice.

^ I fully agree. Really we should have protocols (that work with various apps), not just apps that each cook their own stew.

One of these days I will go down that rabbit hole (not only for video conferences, also messaging etc.) and see what is there. I believe the keyword is "fediverse"?
