Microsoft Teams calls are getting end-to-end encryption in July:

Microsoft Teams is getting better security and privacy next month with the addition of end-to-end encrypted 1:1 voice calls.

While Microsoft Teams already encrypts data at rest and in transit, it allows administrators to configure automatic recording and transcription of voice calls.

Due to this, Microsoft Teams calls are not suitable for sharing very sensitive information that should remain private between two individuals.

Starting in July, Microsoft Teams is getting end-to-end encryption for 1:1 VoIP calls so that their discussions remain entirely private.

    It's funny you mentioned Zoom, browser client, and quality in the same message.
    Apparently I'm the only person on the whole Internet whose Zoom Web client stops the audio when I bring another full screen window in front of it.
    À slightly smaller window allowing some pixels of Zoom to be shown leaves the audio running. And yes, I've confirmed myself that the meetings are not configured to detect that people are paying attention.

    I mean, anybody who thinks this is quality software has some serious cognitive issues.

    Zoom maybe shit too, but in comparison it is good, in at least, it usually somewhat works.

    And, GP did not say Zoom was quality-- that was only the voice in your head. Try to read and respond to what is written instead of creating strawmen to slay.
