Up to now, XMPP was the default communication service on Disroot. After much of debates, investigations and testing we have decided to implement Matrix, which is a new instant messaging software with an inspiring philosophy. You can read more on our decision to promote Matrix in a previous blogpost.
If you prefer, you can still use your Disroot account to connect to XMPP.
For more information on that here.
Communicate with your friends using a standardized, open and federated chat protocol with the ability to encrypt your communication. Matrix is a network of servers providing chat and video/audio call solution for thousands of people across multiple servers. Just like XMPP, with matrix you are not bound to one service provider, contrary to services such as whatsapp, skype, signal, slack and many others. In fact, the main idea behind matrix is to create platform where all people can communicate with each other regardless to their communicator of choice. Matrix is still young but is already a very promising project.
