Zoom is making an effort to unite families that are separated during the COVID-19 pandemic. The video conferencing service has announced that it will lift its 40-minute call limits during Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Years’.
“COVID-19 has changed how we live, work, and celebrate in 2020, and like everything else this year, the holiday season doesn’t look the same,” the company stated.
