  • Patent number: 10313135
    Abstract: A secure instant messaging (IM) system integrates secure instant messaging into existing instant messaging systems. A certificate authority (CA) issues security certificates to users binding the user's IM screen name to a public key, used by sending users to encrypt messages and files for the user. The CA uses a subscriber database to keep track of valid users and associated information, e.g. user screen names, user subscription expiration dates, and enrollment agent information. A user sends his certificate to an instant messaging server which publishes the user's certificate to other users. Users encrypt instant messages and files using an encryption algorithm and the recipient's certificate. A sending user can sign instant messages using his private signing key. The security status of received messages is displayed to recipients.

  • Publication number: 20190158660
    Abstract: Implementations of the present application relate to caller preview data and call messages based on caller preview data. In some implementations, a method includes sending, by a caller device, a call request to one or more callee devices, and establishing a connection to at least one callee device prior to receipt of an acceptance of the call request by the callee device. At least a portion of caller preview data is transmitted to the callee device over the connection prior to the receipt of the call acceptance. In response to determining that the at least a portion of the caller preview data has been transmitted for a particular time period without receipt of the acceptance of the call request, information is transmitted to instruct a call message to be stored on the callee device, where the call message includes at least a part of the caller preview data.

  • Patent number: 10122848
    Abstract: Implementations of the present application relate to caller previews for video calls. In some implementations, a method includes sending, by a caller device, a call request to a callee device and determining an identifier associated with the callee device. The method determines whether the identifier is associated with an address book of the caller device, and/or is in an outgoing call record of the caller device. An acknowledgment is received from callee device, and, upon receipt of the acknowledgment, a connection is established with the callee device. Based on determining that the identifier is associated with the address book and/or in the outgoing call record, at least a portion of a caller video is transmitted over the connection with the callee device. The caller video is transmitted prior to receipt of an acceptance of the call request from the callee device.

  • Patent number: 10104341
    Abstract: Implementations relate to providing animated user identifiers. In some implementations, a computer-executed method includes determining that a video call over a communication network is connected between a first device associated with a first user and a second device associated with a second user. The method stores a set of multiple images that are received by the first device as part of the video call, and forms a motion clip including the set of multiple images and indicating a sequence of the set of multiple images for display. The method assigns the motion clip to a user identifier associated with the second user, and causes display of the motion clip to visually represent the second user in response to the user identifier being displayed in at least one user interface on the first device.

  • Publication number: 20170331917
    Abstract: A method for determining a popularity of an online identity includes identifying an online identity for which a popularity measurement is to be determined, and identifying one or more other online identities based, at least in part, on their being within a specified number of degrees of separation of the online identity. Popularity measurements for the other online identities are accessed and aggregated, and a popularity measurement for the online identity is determined based on at least the aggregated popularity measurements for the other online identities. A computer readable medium includes instructions for generating a graphical user interface for enabling a determination a more popular online identity of two online identities. The graphical user interface includes a first identifier specification mechanism that enables specification of an identifier of a first online identity, and a second identifier specification mechanism that enables specification of an identifier of a second online identity.
