    Signal Messenger's whole design philosophy from the ground up is focused around taking privacy and security at a top notch level and to collect as little user data as possible. It had already omitted storing information like user avatars, profile names, contacts, and a dozen more. Its next move, and probably with a much better protection for spam and abuse, is hiding who is messaging whom, which comes to beta tester in the form of version 4.30.5 and 4.30.6. Below is the changelog, applicable for both.

    Changelog:

    ★ Support for "sealed sender" messages

    ★ We updated the built-in emoji set and added support for "Fitzpatrick" customization.

    Signal, the open source, simple and secure messaging application with more than five million installs on the Play Store, received a series of updates in the beta channel, with the latest one being version 4.29.0 dated from October 12.

    The improvements are focused around taking pictures with the included camera. It was quite limited before, with the camera preview window showing up only in the bottom half of the screen, so you were missing quite a lot of the scenery. The new camera UI works in full-screen, still has a shutter button and a button to toggle between the main camera and the selfie shooter. There are a couple of simple photo editing tools available, but they are very limited.
