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 two primary chat resources:

  • #pidgin on on IRC
  •, a Jabber/XMPP MUC (Multi-User Chat)


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!

We've launched the new site. Think we're missing something?
