The only restriction that the app applies is the 40-minute limit of the free video calls, which annoys the users. In order to help its users celebrate Thanksgiving with their family and friends without any interruptions after every 40-minutes, the company has decided to lift the limit temporarily.
Zoom’s competitor video calling software like Google Meet and Cisco Webex also have a 60-minute and 50-minute limit, respectively. Among all the video conferencing platforms, Zoom has been the number one choice for people worldwide.
As a thank you to our customers, we will be lifting the 40-minute limit for all meetings globally from midnight ET on Nov. 26 through 6 a.m. ET on Nov. 27 so your family gatherings don't get cut short. ❤️🏡 #ZoomTogether pic.twitter.com/aubsH0tfxG— Zoom (@zoom_us) November 10, 2020
