Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.
@mhoye Sometimes I feel like Google has two personalities. The open-source loving and good company Google and the proprietary, privacy invasive and anti-competitive Google.
@admin one of those personalities is clearly subservient to the other.
