Element is a front-end client implementing the decentralized, secure, messaging and data-transport protocol, Matrix.
(Note: Element was once named Riot. It was rebranded as of version 1.7.0.)

Element is more than a messaging app. Element is a shared workspace for the web. Element is a place to connect with teams. Element is a place to collaborate, to work, to discuss your current projects.

Element removes the barriers between apps, allowing you to connect teams and functionality like never before.

Element is free. Element is secure.
