RiotX

Next Generation Matrix Client

RiotX is a new client for the Matrix protocol (Matrix.org): an open network for secure, decentralised communication. RiotX is a full rewrite of the Riot Android client, based on a full rewrite of the Matrix Android SDK.

Disclaimer: This is a beta version. RiotX is currently in active development and contains limitations and (we hope not too many) bugs. All feedback is welcome!

RiotX supports:

  • Login to an existing account
  • Create room and join public rooms
  • Accept and reject invitations
  • List users rooms
  • View room details
  • Send text messages
  • Send attachment
  • Read and write messages in encrypted rooms
  • Crypto: E2E keys backup, advance device verification, key share request and answer
  • Push notification
  • Light, Dark and Black themes

Not all features in Riot are implemented in RiotX yet. Main missing (and coming soon!) features:

  • Room settings (list room members, etc.)
  • Calls
  • Widgets
  • ...
