Facebook is supposedly seeking to add end-to-end encryption to both Instagram Direct and Facebook Messenger chats, as per media report. It is fraction of a plan from Mark Zuckerberg (CEO) to combine the underlying messaging system all over Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp so all 3 apps can interact among each other.
The decision apparently comes squarely from Zuckerberg, who has instructed the firm to operate the underlying framework behind all 3 apps into a unified & single service that will let consumers of Facebook’s 3 different messaging services to communicate with each other, even if they do not have accounts on the same application.
As fraction of that overhaul, Zuckerberg is supposedly claiming that Instagram and Messenger join WhatsApp by including end-to-end encryption. This indicates that Facebook will no longer be capable of investigating or accessing any text sent on any of its websites. Facebook Messenger already provides a Secret Conversations function that has encrypted end to end, but few consumers know about it.
On a related note, earlier WhatsApp claimed to be busy on some aspects that will make the app appropriate for businesses. WhatsApp for business will allow the users to have an improved communication with businesses and vice versa. A new report recommends that the company is aiming to introduce out the new enterprise feature on the Windows Phone platform as well.
In the new updated version of the app 2.17.234 for Windows, the company has added some enterprise-friendly abilities in it. As per, WaBetaInfo (@wabetainfo), Windows Phone consumers will now be allowed to use (in their profile name for business) a tick mark character. The check mark will prevent confusion and will also point out that the enterprise account is established. The firm has also exposed some appealing information regarding the video calling function.
