What about supporting Signal? It’s a non-profit organization and their software is open source. Obviously it’s not as flexible as XMPP, but it seems to grow more popular: Signal might be the first privacy-oriented app for a lot of people.

Does it still require a phone number to register an account? I think it’s a better option than Facebook etc, but it’s not as anonymous as other options including XMPP or the more modern and gaining traction Matrix protocol.

A phone number is required, but according to their AMA they’re working on a solution. Personally, I love XMPP and Matrix, but it’s still seems too techy for most people at this stage of development.

The inconvenience with the phone number you can avoid with a burner phone or landline,voip etc.
With Signal you can do group chat now also.
Signal is not only voice its also video.
There are more safe options like threema although you have to pay 2-dollars ones.I think thats not really  problem.
