Along with Thanksgiving, it’s also rumoured that Zoom will offer the same 24-hours of free unlimited calls over Christmas although this has yet to be confirmed.
The move from Zoom to offer longer video calls without paying a fee follows a similar announcement from Microsoft Teams.
The Redmond firm recently announced that, to help its users stay connected, meetings in Teams will be able to run for a whopping 24 hours.
