Brave browser, a cryptocurrency-powered, privacy-centric web browser has launched an in-browser video calling feature with end-to-end encryption.
Brave twitter handle announced the launch of Brave together in North America. Known as Brave Together, the platform allows end-to-end encryption for video calls—but is still in testing mode with incomplete features. (The service, for example, only enables encryption for one-on-one calls at the moment.)
Our Nightly version for North America now features Brave Together, our private and unlimited video calling service based on open source @jitsinews. Click on the widget & start connecting with friends/colleagues. Feedback welcome at https://t.co/SWLpcAKZDq for this trial version. pic.twitter.com/UPFE13Z0xB

‘Brave Together’ can be used to make unlimited encrypted video calls featuring two participants. Brave browser users can access this feature without any login account.
Brave Together is based on the open-source, encrypted video chat software Jitsi. Although no signup is necessary, you need to have a Brave browser installed to use this feature.
The move came after the sudden rush in video conferencing service due to the global pandemic. Zoom privacy failure and frequent Zoom bombing made people shift to the other video conferencing services such as Google meet, Messenger Room, etc. Amid this chaos Brave Together is best for those who are concerned more about their privacy.
Other notable options in Brave Together including screen sharing, video quality controls, text chat, sending an alert by “raising your hand,” and more. All these options make this video calling service worth trying. The only thing one could miss is the option to blur the background.
