You meant Free and Libre Open Source Software, FLOSS?
There's Mumble if you need just VoIP.

Oh great, let's take Jabber, and shove it into HTML!
Federated systems are great from a technical standpoint, and nerds like me will always use them just fine. But if we want encryption to actually move out of the hands of the massives after only nerds having it for 50 years then it needs to be on fully distributed systems. Dealing with servers and configuration does not make any sense to normal people. I've tried to get my friends to use Jabber but when the "app" is called Jitsi and the sign up form is at "hot-chili.net" and add account menu says "XMPP" and I tell them to add me at me@dukgo.com then they get confused and give up. The app, the protocol, the website are all just one amorphous thing to tech illiterate people. Which is to say, everyone who is not us.
Something like Tox is way better.

Why not Ring, it was recently endorsed as an official GNU Project

Also Ring is god tier, not even joking, but Slack is kill. Riot just have to get the same level of attention or to get a big community
