Overview

Element (formerly Riot) allows teams to communicate across a wide range of collaboration apps. If some team members use the software while others use IRC, Slack, or Gitter, the app will allow these team members to seamlessly work together. The tool offers the richest network of communication bridges. No one should control your communication and data but you. The program lets you run your own server and provides users and teams with the most advanced crypto ratchet technology available today for a decentralized secure Internet.
  • Own and control your data
  • Decentralised end-to-end encryption
  • Cross-signed verification
  • Open network
  • Messaging, voice and video

Element for PC is an entirely open source: all the code is published on GitHub (Apache License) for anyone to see and extend. This means teams can customize or contribute to the code and everyone can benefit from the speed of community innovation. Riot is built on top of the Matrix. Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralized communication delivering a community of users, bridged networks, integrated bots, and applications plus full end-to-end encryption. No limits on features, group size, or usage for public rooms!

Features and Highlights

Creative Agencies
Efficient. Clutter-free. The software knows how to go unnoticed. Free your mind, relax and let your creativity express itself. Integrations (coming soon) for Basecamp, Invision, Zeplin, and more bring updates right into your team room for easy tracking. Guest access, interoperability with Slack, and other networks let you easily reach your customers through one simple, elegant interface.

Small/Medium Businesses
We all know the communication problems you can find in even the smallest businesses. With the app, get everyone painlessly on the same page - without them having to give up their existing tools!

Adhoc Teams
Need to get a bunch of different people quickly on the same page? It might be a collaboration between teams, companies, families, clubs... The app's guest access and interoperability let them plug into their preferred tools and get up and running rapidly.

Note: Additional features available in the paid editions. For a fully managed service and the fastest messaging performance choose Element Matrix Services (EMS).
