To be clear on my question, the situation I am talking here, is the following:  the meeting is started by the Zoom Pro user that created the meeting, and sometime he needs to log off and at this point he does tranfer the current meeting hosting to another user (that is only a basic licence) deas it mean that the meeting will close after 40 minutes when the change will be in place in July?

Hi @Buzzybody , 

No, in the situation provided, the meeting would not be capped at 40 minutes. This is because the meeting limit of any meeting is determined by the actual host/owner of the meeting, not any potential participants in the meeting. Passing host to someone in a meeting is just giving them temporary host controls, not a complete transfer of ownership of that meeting, so the duration limit is not rechecked or changed.
