As of #10173, we will be offering a public STUN server hosted at turn.matrix.org. For those who know how STUN and TURN work, it feels a bit deceptive to say "STUN server at domain name including the word turn", as it is surprising and confusing to read.

We should consider:

  • Adding an additional, more generic domain name to the STUN / TURN server, such as voip.matrix.org or call-assist.matrix.org etc.
  • Updating the clients to use this domain for connections and in text to explain the situation

TURN is a superset of STUN though; it's perfectly reasonable to say "use the stun server at turn.foo.com". I don't think we should obfuscate things here tbh.
