SOMA Messenger has been the fastest growing mobile app - 10 million people signed up within the 30 days. It announced the launch of group voice and HD video calling for up to four people. Users can now video chat with up to four friends from phones running both iOS and Android. According to the company, it is the only app to offer encrypted group video calling for free. It is completely secure, safe, and private:
- All messages, no matter where they come from or where they are sent, are permanently deleted immediately after delivery.
- Undelivered messages expire and are permanently deleted after seven days.
- Messages are never stored on the servers or in any cloud after they are deleted.
- User contacts are all encrypted, and phone numbers stored in users’ address books cannot be seen by SOMA Messenger.
It is used one of the most secure encryption algorithms – a combination of 2048-bit RSA and 256-bit AES.
The name is an acronym for Simple Optimized Messaging App.
