After months of work, Skype’s Private Conversations are now a practical reality. Users on Android, iOS and desktop platforms can now switch on end-to-end encryption for both calls and text chats. If your intended recipient accepts your invitation, the technology will better shield your conversations from eavesdroppers hoping to intercept chat traffic or snoop on your device. It’ll even hide content in notifications and the chat list to prevent someone from casually glancing at your sensitive discussions.
