Video Conferencing During the COVID-19 Pandemic

With face-to-face meetings being cancelled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals have turned to video conferencing platforms, such as Zoom or Microsoft team etc. to maintain productivity and keep in touch with colleagues and customers. Let’s us introduce a quick guide for those who haven’t tried.

Free Plan

The good news is that Zoom Meetings has a free plan available. The free plan lets you host up to 100 participants and take part in unlimited one-on-one meetings. However, each group meeting can only be 40 minutes long at most.

Affordable plan

If the free plan is not good enough for you, you can sign up for one of the paid plans. Pricing is affordable, though, starting at just $14.99 per month per host. Then the meeting can host up to 1,000 participants. Host is the only person to pay the fee.
