Instagram prepares for Clubhouse-like audio rooms and end-to-end encryption in chats

Seeing this as a potential opportunity, social media giants including Facebook and Twitter are working on their own adaptations for a wider audience.

While Twitter Spaces is already being tested, we have learned that Facebook is also working to bring live audio rooms to the Instagram app.

In its announcement of Live Rooms , Instagram also confirmed it is “ exploring more interactive tools such as offering moderator controls and audio features that will be available in the coming months.

Facebook started unifying chats from Instagram and Messenger last year, allowing users to use either of the two apps to connect with contacts on the other.

Although Facebook introduced disappearing messaging under the recently-announced Vanish mode for the sake of privacy, end-to-end encryption adds a layer of security to chats and prevents anyone other than the users to interpret the communications even if they are intercepted.

I have been reviewing gadgets for over four years and gained experience by working for prominent tech publications in India before joining XDA.
