Facebook has announced the rollout of end-to-end encrypted Messenger voice and video calls five years after making it available in one-on-one text chats.

End-to-end encryption (E2EE) is used by most popular communication and collaboration platforms, including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, as well as Facebook’s WhatsApp.

E2EE secures text, video, and voice channels to protect the users’ conversations from prying eyes, including the platform’s owner or malicious actors who want to snoop on their discussions.

The content of your messages and calls in an end-to-end encrypted conversation is protected from the moment it leaves your device to the moment it reaches the receiver’s device

This change comes after Messenger users have made over 150 million video calls a day during the last year, with both audio and video calls seeing a dramatic surge

This feature from facebook comes with no surprise that to cope up the stiff competition from other vendors and to stay top of social community… With strict privacy…
