Universal means it's for everyone.

You shouldn’t have to switch apps just because you’re talking to a different friend. Element works with all Matrix-based apps and bridges into proprietary messengers.

Your conversations stay private with; default end-to-end encryption, cross-signed device verification and decentralisation to choose who you trust with your data.
