Telegram Messenger's secure group video calls feature

Telegram Messenger aims to introduce a 'secure group video calls' feature on the app this year. Telegram has stated that the messaging app has over 400 million monthly users.

Telegram Messenger is to add a 'secure group video calls' feature. The date of the launch has not been announced yet. It didn't mention the number of people who can participate in the group video call simultaneously.

Telegram said "Video calls in 2020 are much like messaging in 2013. There are apps that are either secure or usable, but not both. We'd like to fix that, and we will focus on bringing you secure group video calls in 2020."

Previously Telegram's competitor WhatsApp launched its expanded group video and voice calls participants, from four to up to eight people.
