Signal app adds encrypted group video calls

Tuesday 15 December 2020 | 15:42 CET | News
Popular messaging app Signal said it has added support for group video calls in response to customer demand. Up to five people can join a group chat, which will be end-to-end encrypted like everything else on Signal, said the company. The app will initially display the participants in a grid view, but users can swipe up to switch to an individual speaker view. This will update in real time as the active speaker changes.
