At 2021-01-29 at 21:35 UTC Google suspended #Element from the Play Store without warning or notification.
Element is a generic chat app for connecting to the global Matrix communication network, just as Chrome is a generic web browser for connecting to the Web - and just as #Google does not control the content on the Web, Element does not control the content on #Matrix.
Because some things weren't making sense, we wrote #FediLyrics about it at the time.
Anyone is welcome to add a verse about Fedi/altTech if they like :)
