Basic Plan question


Need help please...


For the free Basic Plan, can I have a meeting with 2 other participants (i.e. total of 3 people in the call) for a duration of 2 hours?  Thanks!

Hi, @gupta_rajiv 

You can have a meeting with 2 other participants. However, the meeting will be held just for only 40 minutes, not 2 hours.

Free licenses (Basic)

Meeting ends after 40 minutes (active or idle)

  • 1 host, 2 participants or more at the same time
  • 0 host, 3 participants or more at the same time (join before host)

Note: If participants leave the meeting and join again before their first connection is fully terminated, it may count them as two different participants and trigger the 40-minute time limit.
