Zoom Rolls Out End-to-End Encryption For Both Free, Paid Users


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom has become an incredibly popular tool for businesses and people alike. In the latest version of its Android app, Zoom has enabled users to livestream to YouTube, but it takes a few settings to work.

Zoom for Android version is now rolling out via the Google Play Store with a few tweaked features in tow. The flashlight now works while using the app. End-to-end encryption — a change rolling out to Zoom on all platforms — is now supported. The full changelog is available below.

Video meeting app Zoom has made its new end-to-end encryption (E2EE) feature available to users globally, free and paid, for meetings with up to 200 participants.

This optional feature is available immediately as a technical preview, meaning that the company is proactively soliciting feedback from users for the next 30 days, Zoom said on Monday.

“We’re very proud to bring Zoom’s new end-to-end encryption to Zoom users globally today,” said Zoom Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Jason Lee.

Zoom was earlier sued by one of its shareholders who alleged in the complaint that the platform failed to disclose some vulnerabilities and that the services did not provide end-to-end encryption.
