Zoom will remove the 40-minute limit for video calls on these special dates



Zoom has made many changes and implemented several new features at your service in recent months. Of course, some of them designed for your paid users.

However, the latest ad will benefit all free accounts worldwide. A gift from the Zoom team that will only be enabled on certain dates and times.

Zoom Unlimited Video Calls

If you have a Zoom account, you'll know that free accounts have a 40-minute limit for video calls. When that time limit is met, the meeting closes automatically. And while you can recreate the video call, it's a tedious process and can impair the dynamics of your virtual meeting.

Zoom's team doesn't want its users to experience interruptions in their video calls with family and friends this festive season, so it announced that it will remove the 40-minute limit on the days corresponding to upcoming holidays, including the eve.


It's the same dynamic Zoom applied for Thanksgiving. This time, Hanukkah's last days, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, and Kwanzaa's last day will be taken into account, following these times (ET):

10 a.m Thursday 17 December to 6 a.m from Saturday 19

December 10 a.m Wednesday 23 December to 6. Am from Saturday, December

26, 10 a.m Wednesday, December 30 to 6 a.m.m on Saturday, January 2

During those time periods, users will be able to use Unlimited Zoom from their free accounts. They don't need to take any action, as Zoom will automatically apply this change to all accounts worldwide.


So families and friends will be able to have long festive dinners connected to Zoom without worrying about the limit and without opting for the paid version. Remember that the schedule shared by the Zoom team follows ET time, so you'll need to convert it to your local time.
