For those that might be meeting virtually over Christmas, you will now be able to chat and see each other for longer as Zoom has announced

COVID-19 has changed how we live, work, and celebrate in 2020, and like everything else this year, the holiday season does not look the same. As a token of appreciation to our users during an extraordinary time, we are removing the 40-minute limit on free Zoom accounts for all meetings globally for several upcoming special occasions”.

Here are the dates and times for unlimited meetings:

3pm Thursday, 17 December to 11am Saturday, 19 December.

3pm Wednesday, 23 December to 11am Saturday, 26 December.

3pm Wednesday, 30 December 11am on Saturday, 2 January.

You do not need to do anything to remove the limit — it will be automatically lifted during these designated times.”
