If 2020 has given us anything, it is a new appreciation for services like Zoom.

In a year where nothing is normal and we cannot conduct life like we're used to, Zoom has often been the answer. It's how we interact with extended family and friends when it's not safe to see them...it's how many do business and meetings, it's how a lot of children are learning, and it's even the way we saw Santa this holiday season!

I think it's safe to say many of us couldn't socially survive without Zoom right now, and because of that, Zoom is giving us a special gift this holiday season.

According to WGN, Zoom recently released a statement that said;

As a token of appreciation to our users during an extraordinary time, we’re removing the 40-minute limit on free Zoom accounts for all meetings globally for several upcoming special occasions. Whether coming together on the final day of Hanukkah, celebrating Christmas, ringing in the New Year, or marking the last days of Kwanzaa, those connecting with friends and family won’t get cut short.

Users won't have to do anything to get unlimited access, but there are certain times it will be available which are; 9 a.m. CT Wednesday, Dec. 23, to 6 a.m. CT Saturday, Dec. 26 and 10 a.m. CT on Wednesday, Dec. 30, to 6 a.m. CT on Saturday, Jan. 2.

If you've never used Zoom before and don't have an account, set up one now at zoom.us. It's seriously so easy to do, even my Mom could figure it out. LOL!
