Kim Dotcom's Mega to launch browser-based encrypted video call and chat service 'soon'
Kim Dotcom, founder of file hosting service Mega, today revealed his company will be launching a browser-based chat service "soon." Dotcom referred to the service with the hashtag #MegaChat, though he confirmed with VentureBeat that this many not be its final name.
This is not the first time Dotcom has talked about the upcoming service, which gets mentioned every few months but has yet to hit public availability in any form. There is naturally a lot of hype surrounding it, given the increasing importance put on secure communications on the Internet. This time, the entrepreneur is promising the service will be encrypted, browser-based, and offer "high-speed" file transfers:
Back in February 2013, Kim first unveiled that Mega would be expanding into email, chat, voice, video, and "mobile." We haven't heard much about the secure email service since August 2013, but the company has since released a few mobile apps, and of course the other three fall into the same category: the upcoming Skype competitor.
