In collaboration with Signal, Microsoft is introducing a Private Conversations feature in Skype, powered by Signal Protocol.
At Signal, our goal is to make private communication simple and ubiquitous. With hundreds of millions of active users, Skype is one of the most popular applications in the world, and we ’ re excited that Private Conversations in Skype will allow more users to take advantage of Signal Protocol ’ s strong encryption properties for secure communication.
The Private Conversations feature is available now in preview for Skype Insiders.
There ’ s (still) more to come
Microsoft joins a growing list of organizations including WhatsApp, Google, Facebook, and Signal itself that have integrated the open source Signal Protocol into their messaging platform.
We ’ re going to continue our efforts to advance the state of the art for frictionless private communication, in our own app and in others. We ’ re excited about the future of Signal Protocol and the places it is going.
卤煮印象中,Signal 应该和脸书 /Allo/W'sApp 都有合作,但这几个在部分国度几乎无法使用.
Signal 自己的 App,消息经常 delay,我估计受干扰的可能也不小.
Skype 貌似大部分时间都可以正常使用,用户群体也比 Signal 自身大多了.
在 telegram 需要道具辅助的情况下,skype 似乎是更容易推荐给周遭朋友的选择?
