How to use Jitsi Meet in Element macOS Client?

I’m Using Element on macOS desktop client and there shall be an widget to start Jitsi Meet. But I can’t find a way to install this widget and to start a Jitsi Meet conference.
How to do this?

It’d probably be best to ask in the Element / Matrix community, since they build that client.

Jep and I got a response, a Tutorial is here.
The installation is not so easy (compared to a simple click on a button :grinning: ). But at the end it extended the Element / Matrix messenger by the impressive features of Jitsi.
Or - turned around - it expands Jitsi by the very important feature of calling a partner by a ring to start a conference.
