Today’s Solutions: December 08, 2023

Celebrating Thanksgiving away from our extended family this year is now a little easier as Zoom announced last week that it will remove the 40 minute limit on video chats on its platform for the entire day of Thanksgiving. 

The free video chat window will run from 12 a.m. ET on Thanksgiving until 6 a.m. ET the next day. Zoom is marketing the unlimited minutes as a “thank you” to its customers after the video chat platform saw a skyrocket in demand from pandemic shutdowns. 

As we face socially distant holidays, it is comforting to know that we can share as much virtual time as we would like with our friends and relatives. Need more ideas for a socially distant celebration? Check out our article on how to safely celebrate the holidays.
