Facebook Upgrades Messenger with New Features like end-to-end encryption

Facebook Upgrades Messenger with New Features like end-to-end encryption. Facebook recently announced several upgrades coming to its popular Messenger app. The key change? Facebook Messenger now uses end-to-end encryption by default for all private messages.

What does this mean for you as a Facebook user? With end-to-end encryption, only you and the person you’re messaging can read what’s sent – not even Facebook can access the content of your private conversations.

This added layer of security brings Messenger in line with other top messaging apps like WhatsApp, Signal, and Telegram which also provide end-to-end encryption to their users.

In addition to boosted security, Messenger is adding other convenient features like:

  • Edit sent messages within 15 minutes
  • Make messages disappear with self-destructing mode
  • Hide when you’ve read messages (no more read receipts)
  • Speed up audio messages for quicker listening
  • Resume playback where you left off

Messenger is also testing HD photo and video quality for crisper images and footage. This will eventually roll out more widely after the initial small-scale test.

Take Away Point

Facebook Messenger now automatically encrypts your private messages for added security, plus you gain more controls like editing and recall features for your convenience. An upgrade all around for Messenger users.
