the unprecedented nature of this pandemic prompted zoom to temporarily enlist the help of remote learning opportunities to provide temporary support to primary and secondary school students as well as to assist institutions in making the switch to online learning. with nearly two decades of experience helping institutions optimize zoom’s platform for online schools and virtual classrooms, zoom has become a trusted resource for educational institutions. this has been our goal and remains our goal in our ongoing effort to make zoom as easy to use and accessible for everyone.

zoom lifts 40 minute limit

on april 14, information services upgraded student zoom accounts to share virtually all of the features that uo staff and faculty members already enjoy and provide greater parity with the existing microsoft teams service. in the first year zoom was available campuswide, student-hosted meetings with three or more participants were limited to 40 minutes, the same limit that applies to free personal zoom accounts. "now you can work on group projects, host club meetings and call friends and family on zoom for hours at a time." all students can now also serve as alternative hosts for zoom meetings. students can now also host larger zoom meetings. "with so many great options already available, we're committed to preventing unnecessary expenditures on costly zoom storage space."

zoom basic 40 minute limit

some of my colleages using  free accounts are getting notification that they will need to upgrade to pro for 1:1 meeting over 40mins by early may. but it has a lot conflicts within the article and i am not sure what to believe now. i imagine in zoom’s view, this would be viewed as excessive and abusive, and the only way to curb the practice is to reduce the time limit for essentially all multiple-person meetings. if it was me... the 40 minute limit would be moved to an hour, along with the new limitation. i guess i am hopeful some moderator will pickup on user feedback to see they are going to lose clients and users to other platforms like teams or google meet. i attended a live zoom webinar with eleonore, getting started with zoom meetings on 22/4, which was excellent but she said that the basic licence  allowed upto 30hours one to one.

40 minute limit zoom

join our upcoming webinar to get a first-hand look into some of our exciting new product and feature releases. i have been using zoom to make personal video calls for a while now. but since a few days i am getting the 40 minute limits on the similar calls. i'm gonna try another meeting app???? thanks for explaining, alex - but this was not exactly trumpeted from the rooftops, was it? first i knew of it was when the 1-to-1 lesson i was giving was suddenly curtailed. i guess the free, unlimited meetings were too good to last, and zoom has seen us through the most dangerous part of the pandemic, when the ability to work form home was a game changer and skype simply wasn't up to it. ???? yesterday it was limited to 40 minutes, but today i managed to make a one-hour meeting. thanks for that recommendation!
