I've been using Google Duo which is E2E even for group video calls. It's cross platform for iOS/Android too. I wish Facebook Messenger was too.

I hate when companies announce a feature, which his available for less than 1% of its users.

They have to be really good for me to switch. Zoom works fine for me for years with clients and team meetings. Even with low-speed internet. Is it 100% secure?... of course not, Neither is Meet, Microsoft Team or Facebook. But i never had an incident with Zoom. Privacy?....Hmm..i don't work for CIA or discuss state secrets, so it's a moot point. I don't care if they snoop in while my wife is discussing brownie recipes. :))
