Meta announced last week that they are coming up with new features that are going to be added to messenger apps end to end encryption experience. So these features are going to be within the EndToEnd encryption process of communication. These are chat themes, custom chat, emojis reactions,group profile photos, link previews, active status and even the bubbles on Instagram phones are going to be part of this end to end experience. It has been good to see how Meta has been pushing the whole end to end encryption across all their messaging apps like Instagram, DMs, WhatsApp and messenger.Because at the back of it I think what they have in mind is the cross communication experience, the ability for people to cross communicate between these three apps.For that to happen they need to have EndToEnd encryption across shorts. So I think that’s what they are pushing towards, which is good for all of us at the end of the day.
