Pidgin is a huge project with a community that helps to provide support. We have a number of ways you can get in touch with us.


The Pidgin team can be reached via mailing lists for support and development information.


If you prefer chat-based contact, the Pidgin community has a number of primary chat resources where you can reach us.

  •, a Jabber/XMPP MUC (Multi-User Chat) for general discussion
  •, a Jabber/XMPP MUC (Multi-User Chat) for more development-oriented discussion
  • #pidgin on on IRC for both general and development discussion

If you don’t already have an XMPP account, you can use our free PidginChat XMPP Service to reach us there!


We often get people asking how they can help. Take a look at the Contributing page for suggestions! There are lots of things to do for people, and a lot of them don’t even involve the source code!
