40 Minute Meeting Lift Ending on June 30, 2022
To address global efforts and in support of primary and secondary (K-12) education during the pandemic, Zoom lifted the 40-minute time limit. This program is now concluding on June 30, 2022, as most students have returned to in-person instruction.
On behalf of Zoom, we want to thank you for your tremendous work to provide academic continuity and deliver — or receive — education during these difficult times.
What does that mean for you?
Starting on July 1, 2022, impacted Zoom Meeting accounts will automatically revert to the Zoom Meetings Basic plan. Users can meet as often as needed for up to 40 minutes with no limit to the number of hosted meetings.
What are my options?
- You can continue to use your free Zoom Meeting Basic account (with a 40-minute time limit)
- You can speak to your institution about Zoom Meeting education licensing options
- You can reach out to TechSoup, our global partner in support of non-profit organizations
- You can schedule a conversation with a Zoom education representative about your online, hybrid, hyflex, and other instructional or administrative needs.
