Zoom Meetings (stylized as zoom) is a proprietary videotelephony software package developed by Zoom Video Communications. There is a 40-minute time limit on the free plan, which allows for up to 100 simultaneous users. Users can upgrade to a premium plan by subscribing to it. The most expensive subscription allows for up to 1,000 simultaneous participants for sessions lasting up to 30 hours. During the COVID-19 epidemic, the usage of Zoom for distant employment, distance education, and online social relationships skyrocketed.
