Riot is an instant messaging app based on matrix protocol. Matrix is decentralized by design. Both server and client is Free Software and supports end to end encryption. We hope to add matrix service to and bridge the matrix room to our xmpp room some time.

@ambadyanands can you update the website with this information?

Those who wants to try it can install app from Its available for Android, iOS and GNU/Linux, Mac and Windows.

You can create an accout at via the app or you can use account to sign in.

I consider this a strong replacement for proprietary services like WhatsApp and Telegram.

We can also use this for audio conferences.

i was using irc(mostly) and other alternative communication platforms.. for as i know. so far i see matrix offers a reliable bridge.
Does the audio conferences been working good in matrix ? my personal experience for conference .. seems to not much reliable.... but i tried only a few times.
do a pilot call test.. in matrix with atleast 5 peers.

me and my other peers using jitsi for now engage in conference calls... which also offers recording and streaming features.... (but it is not good with smart phones)

another alternative we shall try is murmur.... which is not much used by communities. but i have seen its extensive use by hillhacks community for weekly audio conference.

Today server seems to be having issues. You can still connect to the room via any other server as guest, for example works (thanks to federation!)

This also means we should encourage new users to choose a different home server than and some of us should switch from it so it can handle the load well. We are working on setting up matrix server in and once it is setup, I will switch to it.
