If you plan on having a Zoom call with your family this Thanksgiving, there is good news. You won't have to worry about how long you can chat.

Normally if you are using the free Zoom service, the call can only last 40 minutes, but Zoom recently announced that they are lifting that restriction for Thanksgiving.

According to Theverge.com, Zoom will not have a time restriction on Thanksgiving day.

It’s only a temporary removal of the 40-minute restriction, lasting from midnight on Thanksgiving Day (November 26th) to 6AM ET on November 27th

The 40-minute restriction is part of the Zoom basic plan. Other video-conference companies like Google Meet and Cisco Webex also have time limit restrictions on their basic services.
