Element (formerly Riot) for Mac allows teams to communicate across a wide range of collaboration apps. If some team members use the app while others use IRC, Slack or Gitter, the app will allow these team members to seamlessly work together. The program offers the richest network of communication bridges. No one should control your communication and data but you. The tool 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 macOS is 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 for Mac is built on top of 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!

Small/Medium Businesses
We all know the communication problems you can find in even the smallest businesses. With the software, 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 collaboration between teams, companies, families, clubs... The app's guest access and interoperability lets them plug into their preferred tools and get up and running rapidly.
