Matrix (sometimes stylized as [matrix][disputed – discuss]) is an open standard and communication protocol for real-time communication. It aims to make real-time communication work seamlessly between different service providers, in the way that standard SMTP email currently does for store-and-forward email service, by allowing users with accounts at one communications service provider to communicate with users of a different service provider via online chat, voice over IP, and videotelephony. It therefore serves a similar purpose to protocols like XMPP, but is not based on any existing communication protocol. From a technical perspective, it is an application layer communication protocol for federated real-time communication. It provides HTTP APIs and open source reference implementations for securely distributing and persisting messages in JSON format over an open federation of servers.[2][3] It can integrate with standard web services via WebRTC, facilitating browser-to-browser applications... Synapse is the reference implementation of a Matrix home server, written in Python. It's reference client app is Element
