Zoom will temporarily remove its 40-minute Thanksgiving limit for free users with COVID-19 still ongoing and just about anywhere, so families could spend more time together in the midst of reducing social gatherings. On their official Twitter account, the firm announced this.
COVID-19 toll continues to rise in the US. The pandemic is making parties and gatherings seem impossible, especially on Thanksgiving and the holidays. But families and friends could almost feel the vibe of being together, even just in a virtual position, thanks to video communication tools such as Zoom.
As a lucrative application or software, reports say that Zoom imposes a time limit on free users. Upgrading to a Pro, Business, or Enterprise Zoom account means that the user has to pay in these cases without any time limits, and additional different features have been added depending on the type of subscription a user would have access to.
The Zoom Pro Account costs USD 14.99 per host per month, with benefits like unlimited one-to-one meetings, unlimited meetings, unlimited duration of group meetings, web and video conferencing. The higher type of account, the Business Account, would cost USD 19.99 a month per host.
The benefits are the same as the Pro Account, but up to 10 or more host accounts may be available. The other the Enterprise Account, is also the same price as the Business Account, with the same benefits as the first two types, but up to 100 or more host accounts can be available.
The video communication and conference system has already been used on a worldwide scale. But it went from the low points back then, like any other business, all the way to where it is today.
Zoom’s Market Performance: Then and Now
In general, Zoom was used for company meetings and only had a smaller number of users. Yet today, when users around the world now rely on Zoom as their means to continuously perform live events, talks, forums, webinars, conferences, shows, and performances, or just for casual chitchat and use, all due to the protocol of social distancing and mass gathering prevention caused by the pandemic, it has found an immense hop on sales.
Today, schools, private and public companies, government and non-governmental organizations have signed up for Zoom’s upgrades to fully maximize the tool for those aspects of society for the so-called ‘new normal’ setup.
Zoom gained at least 468 percent in sales. That’s such a huge rise for the business, or any other business would do it, finally having its biggest break since it was established in 2011. Zoom can still rise to the occasion as one of the most profitable companies of 2020, now considered part of the new way of living and dealing with the pandemic.
