Zoom intends to lift the default 40-minute meeting limit on Thanksgiving day so that family’s stay connected without interruption.
Zoom, the communications tech company has said that it would lift its default forty-minute limit on free video calls for ‘Thanksgiving Day’ to make it easier and simpler for families to spend time virtually on the US holiday.
The forty-minute time limit has been a major restriction throughout Covid pandemic, which forces groups to restart the calls after the specified time. Zoom’s competitors have imposed comparable limitations, including Google Meet (hour long cutoff) and all similar service providers charge extra for enterprise-grade plans that eliminate the restrict and grow the quantity of members permitted.
Zoom’s expulsion of the forty-minute cutoff will be from 12 PM on Thanksgiving Day (November 26th) to 6 am ET on November 27.
