About Matrix

Matrix is an open standard communication protocol. It is used for, among other things, group chats, direct messages, sharing files and images.

It can be used as a real alternative to other group chats solutions. Some Matrix clients work in a similar way Discord and Slack do.

Conversations are separated in rooms in a similar fashion to Discord channels, and “Servers” are called “Spaces”.

Official FlightGear Matrix Room

The FlightGear team created an official room called FlightGear (Official), which is bridged to the official FlightGear IRC channel.

Joining the room

If you already have a Matrix client and are already connected, you can use the command below to join the room.
