Wire – the chat app – has recently added several features that users were requesting – encryption, video calls, file-sharing, and more recently, audio messages. And now the Berlin-based startup is adding encrypted screen sharing.
It’s true. Wire is entering a space where it has many competitors – all trying to wow consumers with the same features. It’s a difficult space to dominate – especially with all the heavyweights out there such as WhatsApp, Slack, or even Skype. Some features the others don’t have, are things like audio filters (to obscure your voice during calls), or location sharing but they could be coming soon. Wire is also open source, so anyone can just build their own.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Screen sharing on Wire is end-to-end encrypted to protect your privacy and Wire is apparently the first platform to offer this. It is available on Wire desktop in group chats and it’s also super simple to use. During a voice or video call simply press the screen sharing button.
What do you think? You reckon Wire has a chance?
