Starting May 2, 2022, Zoom is changing the meeting duration limit for 1:1 meetings hosted by Basic users on Free and Free (Credit Card Verified) accounts to 40 minutes. This change creates a uniform 40-minute meeting duration limit for all meetings hosted by Basic users on Free and Free (Credit Card Verified) accounts, including group meetings and one-on-one meetings.
With the obscene amount of profit that Zoom makes, it is a travesty that the 30-hour limit has been discontinued for 1:1 virtual conversations. I suppose this is the company equivalent of removing the rent moratorium, because "obviously" the pandemic has ended and everyone is now "back to normal".
Please, Zoom, have a heart. Have some compassion. Be a good corporate citizen and bring back the 30-hour limit for 1:1 users. We're not here to do business for free; rather, we're here to keep in contact with family and friends while struggling financially, socially, and otherwise.
