Element X Android

Element X Android is a Matrix Android Client provided by This app is currently in a pre-alpha release stage with only basic functionalities.

The application is a total rewrite of Element-Android using the Matrix Rust SDK underneath and targeting devices running Android 6+. The UI layer is written using Jetpack Compose, and the navigation is managed using Appyx.

Learn more about why we are building Element X in our blog post:

Here are some early screenshots of the application:

Rust SDK

Element X leverages the Matrix Rust SDK through an FFI layer that the final client can directly import and use.

We're doing this as a way to share code between platforms and while we've seen promising results it's still in the experimental stage and bound to change.


This project is in work in progress. The app does not cover yet all functionalities we expect. The list of supported features can be found in this issue.


Want to get actively involved in the project? You're more than welcome! A good way to start is to check the issues that are labelled with the good first issue label. Let us know by commenting the issue that you're starting working on it.

But first make sure to read our contribution guide first.

You can also come chat with the community in the Matrix room dedicated to the project.

Build instructions

Just clone the project and open it in Android Studio. Makes sure to select the app configuration when building (as we also have sample apps in the project).


When you are experiencing an issue on Element X Android, please first search in GitHub issues and then in If after your research you still have a question, ask at Otherwise feel free to create a GitHub issue if you encounter a bug or a crash, by explaining clearly in detail what happened. You can also perform bug reporting from the application settings. This is especially recommended when you encounter a crash.
