 Matrix is a decentralized communication protocol, designed to connect different chat networks.

To find Matrix chats, browse the Matrix-messaging-logo.png OpenStreetMap space or the chat list below.

To join the IRC room #osm, join Matrix-messaging-logo.png #_oftc_#osm:matrix.org and to join another room, just adapt the room name accordingly. For details click here.

Discord chats from the server "OSM World" are bridged to their Matrix counterparts. To find them, browse the space Matrix-messaging-logo.png #osmworld:matrix.org.

To subscribe the QA RSS feeds, use Element's Integration manager's RSS bot (instructions here). Group chats are supported. For QA feeds of personal/limited use (for example, the recent edits in your neighbourhood) you can make a private chat with yourself and add the integration bot to this chat.

General tips:

  • Create private spaces to organize group chats and DMs.
  • Create private chats with yourself for the QA RSS feeds (see above), or to replicate the "saved messages" feature from Telegram.
  • Link to the Telegram and Discord bridge's Matrix-messaging-logo.png live status (planned downtime, etc). Matrix-messaging-logo.png OSM-on-Matrix discussion. The Matrix-messaging-logo.png Matrix support room.
