3 month update.
This is by far the most confusing platform for new users. Simultaneously one of the most interesting though. And I mean that due to the flexibility of connecting to other comms channels.
I’ve connected with others in Matrix, including other FOSS communities. I’ve also been using my app to connect with IRC (and therefor bridged to several Mozilla of Mozilla’s Telegram channels, including Mozillians), Gitter (DMs don’t bridge at the moment), Matrix. Immediately this does not feel like a silo seen in the other 2 test platforms.
I’ve tested Riot (for a couple of years), then Gnome Fractal, and more recently Nheko. Each of these is being actively developed, and there are even more around still. The GUI for both Riot and Fractal are to see significant changes in coming weeks.
