Your Only Hope Now Is A Massive, Widespread Internet Outage
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you were hoping to enjoy spectacular South Florida weather without being interrupted for more than 40 minutes by your extended family in colder parts, you may want to tell Zoom to reconsider its act of good will. The video conferencing company just announced that it’s lifting the 40 minute cap on free accounts for Thanksgiving Day. To make this simple: yes, they’re out to get you. Yes, any hope you had of a brief, obligatory online visit and then the “ooops, we’re out of time” excuse just went away.
Here’s the announcement being sent to Zoom users:
We here at Zoom believe it is important to pause, give thanks, and recognize who and what we are grateful for. This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for Zoomers, our amazing customers that have inspired and delighted us in 2020.
To show our appreciation, we will be lifting the 40-minute time limit starting at midnight on November 26th through 6 a.m. ET November 27th for meetings globally. We hope you are able to connect with family and friends to share a meal, raise a glass, and swap stories.
There is no action needed on your part; just connect over Zoom uninterrupted. We hope you have a wonderful holiday and find time to be together.
