Time Limited(free account)


Even if I create ZOOM Rooms, the time limit is now 40 minutes. Did the specifications change suddenly?

Hi @Lofi 


Basic accounts are limited to 40 minutes for meetings of 3 or more participants.


If you have added any App or Plugins to your account, those can count as a participant also.


Hope this helps.

Free users have always been limited to 40 minute meetings where there have been 3 or more joins to the meeting. If there are just 2 joins, your meeting will not be restricted, but as soon as a third joins (or someone disconnects and joins again), you will trigger the 40 minute limit. 

That being said, you can always just restart the meeting again for another 40 minutes. 

I have been using Zoom for meetings with only one other person being invited and joining.  Today it seems that these meetings have been limited to only 40 minutes.  Has something changed?
