Two of the comments under the article mention XMPP protocol for messaging. I've heard good reviews about it too, and it's much more lightweight for selfhosting than Matrix.
Will definitely try it later, currently I don't use any decentralized or selfhosted messenger.

@Wetrix it's a good list, I personally use Element and Signal, element for internet friends and signal for people I know IRL.

Some missing from the list off the top of my head are Jabber and Jami. Look into them.
