Messenger: end-to-end encryption of conversations is coming to more users

End-to-end encrypted conversations are not a new feature in Messenger. Already 6 years ago, Facebook introduces ‘secret conversations’ featurebefore finally launching end-to-end encryption on voice and video calls and in beta for select users.

Now Meta has announced that it has begun gradually expanding the default end-to-end encryption test for Messenger. This feature should become available to more people in the next few months. should significantly improve the security of your conversations.

End-to-end encrypted conversations gain new features

The feature now has more functionality rights. Meta finally offers basics like chat themes, chat emojis and reactions, as well as a host of other features. While chat themes, emojis, and reactions are standard features these days, they haven’t been in the encrypted Messenger experience until now. There are also group profile pictures, link previews, and active status.

note this chat bubbles are also making a comeback on Android. These make it easy to reach people from the home screen. The people you’re talking to appear in a floating bubble on your home screen. You can tap the balloon and start sending messages right away, or you can choose not to use messages by going to Messenger’s options.

Unfortunately, Meta doesn’t say how many people can access end-to-end encryption, but the company says it will notify people in “individual conversations” when their chat security is upgraded. Currently the option to enable E2EE in Messenger is in the settings of each chat and it is not that easy to find. As with WhatsApp and other competitors, we imagine all conversations will be end-to-end encrypted within a few months.
