If you missed unlimited zoom time over Thanksgiving, now is your chance to make up for it. Zoom has temporarily lifted its 40-minute chat limit in recognition of upcoming holidays, the company announced on its blog. The chat limit, which only applies to free accounts, is being removed to help families communicate during Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year and Kwanzaa.
By lifting the 40-minute chat limit, Zoom gives families the ability to connect without the risk of COVID-1
- End of Hanukkah: Apr. AND 10 am to December 17, 19 AND 6 am
- Christmas Eve and Day: Apr. AND 10:00 AM to December 23, 26 AND 6AM
- End of Kwanzaa & New Year: Apr. AND 10:00 AM to January 30, 2 6AM AND
Zoom takes a broad approach to these vacations, so there’s plenty of time for everyone to coordinate with their family and log in for a long chat.
You don’t need to do anything to remove Zoom’s chat limit, although Zoom suggests using a master password to keep unwanted guests out. If your family hasn’t had a Zoom meeting in a while, ask them to update their Zoom app now.
