Latest build Quality Gate Status Vulnerabilities Bugs codecov Element Android Matrix room Weblate


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

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.


Here are some early screenshots of the application:

Rust SDK

ElementX 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.


Please see our contribution guide.

Come chat with the community in the dedicated Matrix room.

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 ElementX 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 (Rageshake) from the Element application by shaking your phone or going to the application settings. This is especially recommended when you encounter a crash.
