Zoom is lifting the limit of 40 minutes of video calls on the occasion of festivals and New Year





Towards the end of this year, netizens say Corona’s ‘birthday’ has arrived! We still have to rely on various video calling apps to stay in touch with our loved ones or to continue our studies. In this situation, the popular video conferencing medium Zoom is going to provide a special advantage to its users. In fact, during the upcoming holidays, Zoom is going to increase the time limit for video calling so that users can virtually communicate with their families without any hassle. The company recently announced in a blog post that the 40-minute time limit for video calling on the days of Hanukkah, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Day and Kwanza Festival will be lifted.
Let’s take a look at the details of when this special facility can be accessed.

To mark the end of the Hanukkah Festival, this special facility of zoom meeting will be available today, i.e. 16th December Eastern Time from 10 am (6:30 pm in India) to 8 am on 19th December (4:30 pm in India). Again, for Christmas, there will be no deadline for video calling from 10am on 23rd December (7:30 pm in India) to 6am on 26th December (4:30 pm in India).

On the other hand, on the eve of the English New Year, New Year’s Day and Kwanzaa celebrations, according to Eastern Time, video calls can be made without interruption from 10 am on December 30 to 2 am on January 2. In India, video calling can be enjoyed for more than 40 minutes from 6:30 pm on the same day to 4:30 pm on January 2.

Incidentally, Zoom similarly removed the 40-minute time limit on Thanksgiving Day this year. In fact, this special initiative of Zoom seems to compete with other competing video conferencing apps in the market. However, if you use Google Meet instead of Zoom, I remind you that Google Meet will offer free unlimited video calls until March 31 next year. In this case, if Google does not extend the deadline to use this free service again, users will have to pay a certain subscription fee to use Google Meet.
