Matrix is a modern and decentralised, open-source chat solution backed by a dynamic community. It provides advanced user-focused features such as end-to-end encryption, bridging or audio & video calls.
The evolution of Matrix is managed through an open governance process, supervised by The Matrix.org Foundation. All the software backing the network is Free and Open Source, which guarantees quality and security.
Both end-to-end encryption and federation are built-in into Matrix. The former will be enabled by default in the near future, making it a valuable tool for activists and privacy-minded people all across the world.
We host your Matrix homeserver in our own datacenter in Switzerland, which we believe to be as ecologically-friendly as a datacenter can get: we use old factory halls, recycled servers, passive cooling and our servers are directly plugged into a hydroelectric power plant.
As of February 2020, the Matrix network supports ~13.5M visible accounts, ~5.0M messages a day, ~40.000 federated servers and even governments!
A lot of privacy, security and usability work is going on: Matrix will get even more awesome in the coming months!
You can follow the Matrix.org blog to get frequent updates on Matrix's development, and chat with us on #matrix:ungleich.ch!
We provide you with your own dedicated Matrix home server, as well as a hosted web client.

There are many Matrix clients, although we strongly recommend Element web which is the most advanced at the moment.
