@boilingsteam I've been using Calyx as a daily driver for ~3 months now. Adjusting to life with MicroG/Aurora store takes a little while. But it's a solid, stable OS. Recommended.
@Casinoslcohol @boilingsteam If you choose to install MicroG (the option is presented to you during install/setup) then Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) will work as per usual.
Hopefully, if @unifiedpush can pull more attention and support, we can start to move away from a dependency on FCM.
If you choose no MicroG, your apps will need to rely on maintaining persistent sockets/notifications to receive push messages.
@michael Thanks for sharing your experience. Do calls and essential functions work normally? And what device do you run it on?
@boilingsteam Calling works perfectly for me. The native phone/dialer app also has integrated support for SIP accounts, which is nice.
SMS works normally, I also install QKSMS. MMS can be strange but I've always blamed that on carriers, not software.
The only real bug that I can think of, is that apps I've installed from Aurora Store do not auto-update. (Calyx includes the Aurora Services system module) I think I may have set something up wrong with that though.
