To recall, the Indian government, like many organizations worldwide, urged the people to avoid using Zoom as it had a lot of privacy and security related issues. Moreover, Zoom doesn't provide end-to-end encryption of the video calls for all free users. In this scenario, Say Namaste is aiming to provide an answer for users.

Screen sharing is one of the most required features for video conferencing, used for official, teaching, and other purposes. Presently, Say Namaste's latest update brings call quality optimization, fixes crashes, and other bug fixes. In a bid to go vocal for local, Say Namaste connects with the Indian sentiment. Moreover, it promises to provide better security features than Zoom, which is another plus point for the platform.
