Facebook is testing Secret Conversation for audio and video calls

It seems that Facebook is thinking of encrypting the video and audio calls, expanding the Secret Conversation capabilities. The company is taking some steps for a more secure and private environment after often being the target of privacy concerns. Now, Jane Manchun Wong, app researcher who generally discloses the unreleased features of apps, has shared a twitter post on this.

According to her, Facebook Messenger is testing audio and video calls over Secret Conversation. The screenshot, which is shared, shows a text “Encrypted end-to-end across all your active mobile devices.”

Back in 2016, Facebook rolled out this Secret Conversation feature within Facebook Messenger that encrypts only text messages and not audio or video calls. According to Facebook’s help center, this encryption also doesn’t support other features, including group messages, GIFs, and payments. So Now, as per Wong, the company is testing the Secret Conversation mode on audio and video calls also.

To activate this, you have to open your Messenger app, then tap on your profile picture, go to Secret Conversation, and switch it on. After doing that except you and the recipient, nobody will able to see your chat. Moreover, you also can choose the devices on which you want to make the conversation visible and even can set a time limit for each sent message. We are also hoping this feature with audio and video call will get protected as same.
