Envoy version 1.7.0 is now live!

We’re excited to announce that the latest version of Envoy1.7.0ย – is now published on all your favorite mobile platforms! To download it, simply visit our download page or check for updates on your platform of choice.

Please note that there can be a significant lag from publishing to general availability due to Apple App Store and Google Play Store review policies and delays.

What’s changed

Envoy 1.7.0 makes it easier than ever to buy Bitcoin straight into self-custody without ever leaving Envoy. We’ve added the ability to buy using fiat, redeem and BTCPay vouchers directly into Envoy, and find the best Bitcoin ATMs and decentralized exchanges as well.

And best of all – Foundation never has access to any information about your purchases at any point in the process. Our policy of protecting user privacy continues to be at the core of what we do, and that carries over into our new Buy Bitcoin feature. If you want to dive more into the Buy Bitcoin feature itself, you can do so on our companion blog post.

We also want to say a special thank you to all of our amazing community who recommended improvements and found and reported bugs, as we were able to incorporate much of that feedback into this release! We’re immensely grateful for users taking the time to do so ๐Ÿงก

For more details on each of the changes, keep reading below!

New Features

  • Buy Bitcoin straight to self-custody, directly in Envoy

    • We’ve partnered with Ramp to integrate a seamless Bitcoin buying experience directly into Envoy. No need to leave the app, no annoying address copy-paste, no hassle.
    • Every sat you purchase gets sent directly to the Envoy account you choose, without ever needing to manually copy-paste addresses.
    • Buying directly to Passport? You can easily verify the withdrawal address with a simple QR scan via Passport.
  • Redeem BTCPay vouchers directly in Envoy

    • The BTCPay team have been hard at work building a unique voucher system into BTCPay which will be out soon, but we’re such big fans we couldn’t wait for full release.
    • As soon as BTCPay vouchers are released to the public, you’ll be able to simply scan the QR and redeem straight into Envoy.
  • Envoy is now available in Portuguese! ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น

  • Added support for Signet and Esplora nodes

    • Signet is a unique Bitcoin testing network that is often far more stable than testnet, so we’ve added support to make testing and educating on Bitcoin via Envoy easier.
  • Added Norwegian ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด Krone display to Envoy


  • Migrated to using our own instance.
