How does Element One work?

Element One is the Element app, with an account on a fully managed Matrix homeserver powered by our hosting service (EMS). Your account gives you access to bridges to WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram. 

Simply connect your WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram accounts; what happens in each account is replicated in Element and vice versa.

You can stay in Element while sending and receiving messages, invites and attachments from your contacts on Matrix and those in WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram.
