Android jami use of google servers

In the settings under Push notification there is an option to use Google servers for receving and allowing calls.

If jami is peer to peer why is the connectivity using google? Also where is user credentials kept?

Hope that i tell it right.
This option is for push messages , It wakeup your phone and your phone look on the dht for the messages.
it save battery life on your phone but it is not needed, you can also turn dht-proxy off

@M1k4 yes you are correct.

Messages do not get sent through Google’s servers. The feature is optional.

Maybe one day there will be a decent FOSS alternative (e.g. https://bubu1.eu/openpush/ ) but for now this is simply a limitation of the Android ecosystem.
