Hello, Fernando,

toxic is a curses command line interface for the tox protocol. With it you can do group audio calls and one on one video calls. toxic doesn't (yet?) let you share your screen, but other tox clients, like qtox, do.

I won't say it is suckless, but it is somewhat close. One could easily use the tox library to implement a suckless tox client, take a look at some echo bot code examples.
