Zoom Steps Up to Help With Thanksgiving Visits


With health experts urging people not to attend holiday gatherings with ones during the pandemic, many are making to a Zoom call with relatives.

Now Zoom has decided to nix that time limit on free calls for Thanksgiving only. The unlimited calling will run 12am on November 26th through 6am on November 27th, giving users 30 hours with family and friends.
