Zoom ditches limits on free video calls for Christmas holidays …but only on a few days
IF YOU want to host a Christmas edition of the Pub Quizzes over Zoom that kept you busy throughout the first lockdown, or get more friends and family around the dinner table than are currently allowed under Government guidance using video calls – Zoom is planning to lift all limits on free accounts for a few days this month.
Zoom wants to help you celebrate Christmas with a few extra (virtual) friends around the dinner table. Zoom has enjoyed a surge of popularity following the lockdowns enforced throughout the year due to the ongoing public health crisis. While anyone can use Zoom for free to video call friends and family, accounts without an active subscription to the service are capped at 40 minutes. After that, your call will end and you’ll need to either stump up for a monthly Direct Debit, or call everyone back for another 40 minutes.
