Element is a unique chat app and collaboration tool for communities.
For Web, Android, iOS, macOS, Windows & Linux
Element is designed for communities; an open messaging app and collaboration tool. It supports public and private chats, including powerful moderation tools. It can be branded, and easy to use with excellent accessibility and screen reader support.
Keep your communities safe. Built on the experience with the Matrix community, Element Matrix Services provides a huge range of features to protect your users - including server ACLs, shared moderation lists, message deletion, extensible anti-spam and anti-flooding mechanisms.
Element heals fragmented communities bringing together your users from other apps and networks such as Slack, IRC and Discord, through a range of bridges for seamless interoperability.
Safe, secure and private so members can communicate with confidence. Element is end-to-end encrypted by default, supports cross-signed device verification to validate conversation participants. It is decentralised to give all parties ownership and control of their data.
Scalable, it grows from tens to millions so you can be successful without having to change home.
Element can be completely free to set-up and run, and can stay that way forever. Large communities have paid options around hosting (where your data lives), integrations (from single sign-on to widgets and bots) and bridges to other systems.
Members are too ‘app-fatigued’ to download and register yet another chat app
Operates with any Matrix-based system, protocols such as IRC and XMPP, and bridges into proprietary systems. Members can stick with their current technology, but still connect
You need more than messages
Messaging and collaboration
More than a messenger, Element is a complete chat and collaboration tool with voice and video calls, file and screen sharing, voting and countless widgets for all sorts of bells and whistles
You need security you can rely on and understand
Default end-to-end encryption means that only those in the conversations can see the data and messages. Cross-signing verifies participants, so you know for sure who you’re talking to.
You need to be sure who owns your community’s data
You can choose where your community’s data and messages are kept - within Element Matrix Services, your own server, or a cloud provider of your choice.
