Facebook is planning to introduce end-to-end encryption to its Messenger app. According to Facebook Insiders, the company is beta testing the system internally and will launch by the end of July 31.
After Facebook releases the update, users will be prompted to pick either added privacy within the app or an improved artificial intelligence infused with the app.
Touted to be released as an opt-in feature, Facebook is planning to add chatbots, as announced at the F8 developer conference earlier this year. As a developer, you will be able to add Bots and can be equipped to help users interact with various services. For example, a bot will be able to assist a company in delivering content in natural language text in real time.
The latest move by Facebook assumes significance especially taking into account the standof between major tech companies and security agencies.
Previously, Whatsapp introduced end-to-end encryption facility, which was widely criticized by various people including FBI and other Government agencies.
