MATRIX and RIOT FOSS messaging?

Anyone out there using come across  FOSS secure messaging platform?

I’d never heard of it before today but came across this article
We’re incredibly excited that the Government of France has confirmed it is in the process of deploying a huge private federation of Matrix homeservers spanning the whole government, and developing a fork of for use as their official secure communications client! The goal is to replace usage of WhatsApp or Telegram for official purposes. It’s a unbelievably wonderful situation that we’re living in a world where governments genuinely care about openness, open source and open-standard based communications – and Matrix’s decentralisation and end-to-end encryption is a perfect fit for intra- and inter-governmental communication.

Seems that more than a few people have indicated they are moving to   eg.  from Slack/Telegram etc but i’m unable to understand why SPAM that’s happening on Slack/Whats App isn’t just going to move across?

I am also particularly interested to hear what peoples thoughts are on their VR conferencing offering - and how it compares to other solutions they’ve tried.
