As a way of saying thanks to its users, Zoom will be lifting the 40-minute time limit on free meetings on the midnight (ET) of November 26 to 6AM (ET) of November 27. With this, people will be able to talk to their friends and families unhindered this Thanksgiving.
Normally, paid yearly packages for Zoom cost between $150-$200. If a host opts to stick with the free option, then a meeting runs for a maximum of 40 minutes. From there, a new free video call needs to be started when participants want to chat for longer.
The video communications platform isn’t just lifting the free time limit in the US—this Thanksgiving initiative is global, so whether you have family or good friends in Sydney or London or Taipei, you can talk to them this coming Thursday. For as long as you like.
