    • Answer: Tentatively, you can:
      • Unverified: In the desktop app, "search" for their phone number, and then send them a message.
      • Unverified: In the mobile app, it may be that you just add people to the regular Android address book and they will show up in Signal if they also have Signal installed.
  • Question: After initiating a conversation via entering someone's phone number, how do you give that contact a name via the desktop app?
