How to Use a Freenode-Registered Nickname on matrix.org

As described here: If you have a Freenode-registered nickname and want to use it from Matrix, you can do it like this:

  • Leave with your nick on IRC
  • On Matrix, open a new chat (Usually a “+” symbol)
  • Invite @appservice-irc:matrix.org to the new chat
  • Say !nick <yournick>
  • A request for new chat with NickServ will pop up
  • Accept it and identify yourself with your Freenode password (identify <password>)

Voila, you'll be using your Freenode-registered nick through Matrix, being able to use multiple devices simultaneously with shared history and all!
