Riot is more than a messaging app.



Break through

Riot allows teams to communicate across a wide range of collaboration apps. If some team members use Riot while others use IRC, Slack or Gitter, Riot will allow these team members to seamlessly work together. Riot offers the richest network of communication bridges.

Own Your Own Data

No one should control your communication and data but you. Riot lets you run your own server, and provides users and teams with the most advanced crypto ratchet technology available today for a decentralized secure Internet.

Open source

Riot is entirely open source: all the code is published on GitHub (Apache License) for anyone to see and extend. This means teams can customize or contribute to the code and everyone can benefit from the speed of community innovation.

Made on Matrix

Riot is built on top of Matrix. Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralized communication delivering a community of users, bridged networks, integrated bots and applications plus full end-to-end encryption. To learn more about Matrix click here.
