Although MicroG development seems to have slowed down, We know there are still thousands of people using this handy little piece of software to claim back their performance, their battery life, their storage, and above all, their privacy.
Using MicroG for beginners is no easy job. You might run into problems. You might wanna try different combinations of MicroG and Google (Hey, what's free software for?).That's why having a support system is essential.
Yes, we're aware that there seems to already be a Telegram group in the official MicroG OP. But to be honest, that group is crap. The admin bans random newcomers and old veterans alike for expressing their disagreements or being in another group, or randomly, even being 'Alts'. From what we've heard, discussion has basically bottlenecked in that group because of fear (Cannot personally confirm. Was banned for using Chrome).
So, here is the other group.
We're basically a set of channels and groups that discuss and provide everything MicroG, FOSS, and Android. We have guides and experts and cool reaction GIFs and whatnot to help you work through either your first or 1000th issue in MicroG. And guess what, we don't ban people for expressing their views or using Gapps (Though we still hate people that wanna sync Google Photos).
We also have our own, up-to-date (UNOFFICIAL) forks of MicroG with installers just with bumped version numbers so that no app will bother you with that 'Update Play Services' message.
The rules are quite simple. Please use common sense, and English. Both mandatory.
(On the request of the MicroG developer, we would like to assert that this group is quite unofficial. If you want Official, try your luck in russian roulette with the official MicroG group. Don't worry, we welcome you dead or alive)
Due to the new XDA rules about chats, we can't post our telegram links here, so here is our MicroG pack github, which links to our channel, which has links to our group. (might not be convenient, but rules)
Please try to spread the word.
Good luck, and stay free (as in freedom).
