Today, we’re beyond excited to announce the first major release of Element X synchronised across both iOS and Android, which we’ve codenamed “Ignition” given it truly marks the point where the Element X engine starts to turn over.

We recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to deep dive into the future of secure communications within the workplace. The results are mind blowing! Off the back of the pandemic, organizations have been caught flat-footed. They now have serious problems with how their workforce communicates; from the shortcomings of email to the Wild West of messaging apps. We’ve made the study - The Future of Secure Communications - available for download.

Psst… don’t tell anyone, but: Android development on Element X has now caught up with iOS and we’ve released an early edition of Element X in the Google Play Store. Since we published our first release of Element X for iOS on the App Store in July, we’ve been swamped with Android users asking how to get involved too; and so now we’re officially making Element X goodness available on both platforms.

At Element, our mission is to provide secure communications to all. We believe that everyone deserves the right to private and safe online interactions. And, everyone means everyone. 🧑‍🤝‍🧑 In today's digital age, accessibility is a vital aspect of any product or service.

I can’t believe it but it’s been a year since we last updated you about the progress of Element Call, our Matrix-based VoIP product. We haven’t been resting on our laurels though, a huge amount of work has been going on over the last twelve months, and today we bring an absolutely massive new update in Beta 3 of Element Call.

OMG it’s fast! Element X isn’t just the fastest Matrix client ever - it’s up to 6000x faster than any other Matrix client. Faster than a cheetah, a peregrine falcon, or a speeding bullet! Faster than light! Faster than light in a vacuum!! Seriously, Element X is a transformation and we’re outrageously proud of it. Not only is it faster, but it’s also got a vastly improved interface which delivers a far better user experience.

Today marks the first day of the Report Stage of the Online Safety Bill. As this Bill progresses through the Houses of Parliament, we hope to (once again) raise the alarm around the risks to encryption posed by this Bill. As ever, our concern is around chapter 5 of the Bill, particularly clause 111 (formerly clause 110, before changes in the House of Lords). This is a key section as it defines the approach to notices to deal with terrorism and CSEA content.
