More Features

To make the videos looks better, Tencent is adding its AI filter for beautification, and even add filters to participant’s background if they want to. VooV Meeting also supports feature which will reduce noise around the person, as well as block sounds while typing the keyboard. The platform will use Tencent’s existing cloud capability to host the content but it remains to be seen if the company is going to store the files on its server.

Zoom has recently acquired file-sharing and encryption service Keybase. The company revealed that it is part of its 90-day pledge to fix privacy and security issues on its platform. This acquisition is focused on building up an end-to-end encryption system on Zoom to better protect the platform.
