It would also require more secure platforms like Signal or Session or Status.
Telegram Ad Platform

I've been wondering the same thing for a while. The closest iteration of this I've come across so far is Session (https://getsession.org)
It routes messages through an Onion/TOR-like network of nodes that others volunteer to run. In return for running those nodes, they generate the Oxen cryptocurrency, similar to how mining Bitcoin works.
This way, it's not fully centralized like WhatsApp/Telegram/etc, but also solves the issues of devices directly communicating, like what happens when the app isn't running on the phone.4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Nov 2021

Author of the world's most secure messaging system here. There is no such thing as going dark. Even my work has a long list of side channels and caveats with potential exploitation, which have been known about for more than 50 years. There's no way for average Joe to e.g. TEMPEST)-proof their phones / devices.
If you're willing to also give up read receipts, message forwarding and invest in hardware, you can get endpoint security from hackers https://github.com/maqp/tfc
There's nothing Signal can do wrt remote exploitation. If that's part of your threat model, you're in a bad place. Lucky for you I've been working on a solution for the past ~decade https://github.com/maqp/tfc

Post quantum chat

https://github.com/maqp/tfc is post-quantum secure provided you select pre-shared key as the key exchange algorithm. Note that you'll have to deliver the key to contact in person on a never-before-used thumb drive, and you won't get it back. Same applies to your contact. The contact also can't be a stranger as you have to trust their thumb drive isn't e.g. a USB killer. There's plenty of other caveats too so make sure to read the wiki before use.

Finally, once you're familiar with Tails and Qubes, my work with endpoint secure messaging might be of interest to you https://github.com/maqp/tfc It's not exactly trivial to use, but getting familiar with the architecture will teach you a thing or two about high assurance architecture, and you'll learn how deep the rabbit hole goes with secure messaging.
