Zoom announced that it will remove the standard 40-minute meeting limit for free accounts that apply to the upcoming music festival, which will be available to users worldwide. Temporary relaxation will take place around Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year in December. This will enable people to spend more virtual time with their loved ones. The video conference service removed the time limit for Thanksgiving meetings for the last time. The zoom has specified a time window within which the 40-minute time limit will automatically increase.
Zoom listed the details of the relaxation of free account users in its blog post, and Zoom said it will remove the 40-minute limit to show its appreciation to its users. Starting from the last few days of Hanukkah, the limit will be automatically increased from 10 a.m. EDT on December 17 (8:30 p.m. EDT) to 6 a.m. EDT on December 19 (U.S. Standard Time) 4:30 pm). Then, the limit will be increased from 10 am EST on December 23 (8:30 pm US Standard Time) to 6 am EST (4:30 pm US Standard Time) on Christmas Day on December 26. Similarly, for the New Year, the limit will be increased from December 30 at 10 am Eastern Time (8:30 pm US Standard Time) to January 2, 2021 at 6 am US Eastern Time (4:30 pm US Standard Time) ).
In early November, Zoom announced that it would remove the 40-minute limit for free accounts on Thanksgiving Day. The limit will be implemented from midnight on November 26 to 6 a.m. EST on November 27 (4:30 p.m. EST) .
This is good news for all Zoom users this holiday season. The celebrations will almost be held at home for video calls rather than in person. Due to the pandemic, Zoom’s user base has grown significantly, and data from August to October shows this. Zoom’s revenue in the second quarter of this year has more than tripled year-on-year, reaching 777 million US dollars (approximately 57 billion rupees), and realized a profit of 198 million US dollars (approximately 15 billion rupees). Zoom’s third-quarter earnings report also showed that compared with July, its customers increased by 63,500. In the previous two quarters, Zoom has added more than 100,000 customers.
