### Telegram

Telegram is a cross-platform messaging service, clients are open-source (server is proprietary). Also messages are not encrypted by default, secret chats are encrypted.

### Matrix

21
[Matrix](https://matrix.org) is a decentralized, open standard and federated communication protocol. You could use the [web0client](https://app.element.io), or install one of the many [Matrix Desktop clients](https://matrix.org/clients/) on your computer (the [Element Desktop client](https://element.io/get-started) is recommended). Or even host your own Matrix server (Synapse) and become part of the federation. Both of which are open-sourced. Messages can be end-to-end encrypted if desired.

#### Matrix homeservers

Matrix is decentralized, this means that in addition to the official matrix.org server, you can also register an account on other homeservers.  
My homeserver URL is open for public registrations: `https://matrix.melroy.org`.
