Matrix is a whole ecosystem of matrix-enabled clients, servers, gateways, application services, bots, etc.

The easiest way to get started is to pick a client that appeals and join #matrix:matrix.org:

Weechat/Matrix
If you like command line clients, try the Weechat plugin. |
Riot
If you like glossy and feature-rich web clients, try Riot. |
Riot iOS
You can also access Matrix on your iOS phone via Riot iOS. |
Riot Android
Riot is also available on Android devices! |

This page aims to collect all known Matrix projects - if you want to add a new one (or update an existing one), you can submit a PR to the matrix-doc project on github - the existing projects can be found here - or just let us know in the #matrix:matrix.org room.
