Description

As of right now, the only way to add a contact in the desktop app is to import them from my smart phone contacts. This is an issue for me, since I do not have constant access to a smartphone with internet connection. I have multiple times been wanting to message a person who is not in my signal contact list, but as there is no way to add new contacts directly from the desktop app I have been unable to.

Was this considered?

Same as @Alexander-Hjelm - I use Signal from Desktop (I only keep the mobile app because it is needed for the desktop app to function.)

We're still aware of this as a feature request. However, we've received a high volume of issues recently and are moving feature requests to the appropriate section on our community forum.

I'm going to close this issue because of that, but feel free to make a forum post and link to it here.

There isn’t any specific “add contact” functionality anywhere in Signal, per se. You can “add” a contact from the desktop app by entering their phone number into the Search box at the top of the conversation list, and then clicking the “Start new conversation…” entry in the list and sending them a message.
