Riot gathers all your conversations and app integrations into one single app.
Built around group chatrooms, Riot lets you share messages, images, videos and files - interact with your tools and access all your different communities under one roof. One single identity and place for all your teams: no need to switch accounts, work and chat with people from different organisations in public or private rooms: from professional projects to school trips, Riot will become the center of all your discussions!
Now with end-to-end encryption! You can view and verify your various devices in the user settings page.
- Instantly share messages, images, videos and files of any kind within groups of any size
- Voice and video 1-1 and conference calling via WebRTC
- End-to-end encryption using Olm (<a href="https://matrix.org/git/olm"></a>)
- See who’s reading your messages with read receipts
- Communicate with users anywhere in the Matrix.org ecosystem - not just Riot users!
- Discover and invite users by email address

Note that the F-Droid release does not use GCM for notifications - instead it will keep syncing in the background. If you find that the ongoing background sync is using too much battery, you can add a delay or change the timeout of the sync or even disable background sync completely, in the settings page.
