Announced in March at the annual Microsoft Ignite event, end-to-end encryption will soon land on Teams. The Redmond firm formalized the launch in early July of this feature among a limited number of users of the professional version of the instant messaging and videoconferencing platform before a general deployment at the end of the same month. It will make it possible to secure individual calls between two participants.

Disabled by default, it must be enabled in the privacy settings. When this is the case, it will no longer be possible to record or transcribe conversations, said Microsoft, which is preparing to unveil a new version of Windows.

Note also that end-to-end encryption will land on the desktop and mobile versions of Teams. The web version will not be affected.
