There’s also a handy widget that’s been added to quickly toggle notifications straight from your Android home screen.

  1. Probably my favorite Android app

    1. I’m getting some very practical use out of it so far. Some of my friends have been getting annoyed at how quickly I reply to their WhatsApp messages! They think I’m a texting wizard.

  2. I love how I can stay a tad bit away from my phone. When they get Kik on board life will be even better.

  3. Love the app, but they really need to get multi recipient and mms added to the toolbox.

  4. It’s great that you can now reply to popular instant messaging applications straight from your computer but it still doesn’t solve the problem of fragmented communications because of all these closed wall-garden applications. is the only project I can think who trying to specifically address this issue. And being open source and not for profit, any developer can build on top of Matrix as well as existing communication services easily integrate with the Matrix ecosystem.
