miniVector

Open team collaboration

A simplified fork of the Riot.im Android app.

This is a minified Android Matrix client derived from the official client. It requires fewer permissions and compiles to a much smaller package.

Full credit goes to the original developers. This fork just shaves-off the following features and dependencies:


  • Jitsi integration (for audio / video conference)

  • React native libraries

  • Application Icon badger

  • Analytics

AntiFeatures:

  • NonFreeNet - Currently the integration server is not configurable in this client and linked to the non-free New Vector implementation. Free alternatives exists but supporting them in Riot Android is still being worked on.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
