Zoom Thinks Law Enforcement Should Get Access to all Your Calls (Unless You Pay)

When I first read that Zoom was planning to add end-to-end encryption, I was delighted. Then I read this article in the Android Authority web site: https://www.androidauthority.com/zoom-encryption-1125396/.  I immediately became very disappointed.

Oh well, I will continue to use Signal for one-on-one video calls because (1.) it is free and (2.) it encrypts all text, audio, and even video conversations. For Chats with groups of users, I will use whatever the other users prefer, possibly even Zoom, as I never discuss finances or any other confidential information in group calls.
