Did you know that #FreedomBox offers a one-click install of @matrix?

#Matrix is software for messaging and VoIP. #FreedomBox installs #Matrix for you and helps you configure it.

#Matrix hosts your chat rooms, which support conference calls and video calls! Just connect with the #Riot chat app. Riot has a beautiful UI!

Do you want to use #Matrix on your #FreedomBox? What better way to connect with friends than #Riot?

Let us know what you think!

P.S. The screenshot of @RiotChat and the video call are real. We hosted Matrix on a #FreedomBox and created three accounts on the Matrix server using three different devices. All three devices could access the server at the same time, and they chatted frictionlessly!

@freedomboxfndn Try joining any somewhat larger room and see how your server dies. Permanently.

@js I think its ok to cater small rooms if not the large rooms, it actually depends upon Hardware too. As the main aim of @freedomboxfndn is to have more decentralized, private and anonymous Community servers!- Community WiFi! Having sum of federated FreedomBox - Matrix instances can have greater impact - & can handle large rooms!


@gorlapraveen @freedomboxfndn I think XMPP is a much better fit for it - that would actually work flawlessly without the hardware being too slow.
