If you missed unlimited zooming time for thanksgiving, now is your chance to get it right. Zoom temporarily lifts its 40-minute chat limit in recognition of upcoming vacations, the company said on his blog. The chat limit, which applies only to free accounts, will be removed to help families communicate during Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years and Kwanzaa.
By lifting its 40-minute chat limit, Zoom is giving families the ability to connect without risking the spread of COVID-19. Here are the days when you can use Zoom without chat limits:
End of Hanukkah: December 17, 10 a.m.ET to December 19, 6 a.m.ET
Christmas Eve and Day: December 23, 10 a.m.ET to December 26, 6 a.m.ET
End of Kwanzaa and New Year: December 30, 10 a.m.ET to January 2, 6 a.m.ET
Zoom takes a holistic approach to these vacations. So everyone has enough time to coordinate with their family and connect for a long discussion.
You don’t have to do anything to remove Zoom’s chat limit, although Zoom suggests using a master password to prevent unwanted guests from entering. If your family hasn’t had a Zoom reunion in a while, ask them to update their Zoom app now.
