Trillian is an instant messaging app that works on phones, tablets, and desktops while keeping your chats neatly synchronized between all of them! We think conversation should be easily shared between all of your devices, not trapped as text messages on your phone.


Trillian’s new launchpad UI lets you keep up with the people most important to you at a single glance. Paired with optional address book integration, Trillian can now automatically import names and photos for your contacts to make you feel right at home.

Trillian group chats

You can now easily start group chats with your friends who also use Trillian, with server-backed chat history!

Improved security

Although we’ve always transmitted passwords using TLS, Trillian 2.0 now uses TLS everywhere, meaning all of your chats are now encrypted over the wire and better protected from third-party eavesdropping.

In-house server compatibility

If your company runs a Trillian Server you can now connect to it using this version of Trillian for Android!

Other goodies

History has been cleanly integrated into message windows, sending photos has been refreshed, taking photos can now load the camera more easily, emoticons have been overhauled, and a bunch of bugs have been fixed! If you’ve had trouble connecting to MSN or Yahoo! in the past, see if 2.0 helps!

Next steps

We’re excited to be working with a clean slate for our Android app – let us know what features you’d like to see come to Trillian for Android next.
