Remind me why zoom is the most popular video conferencing app?

How are people fine with a 40 minute time limit on the meetings and having to pay to remove that limit?

This thing is Chinese trash.

Use Google Meet ffs.

    Yep, horrible for a business to provide a service for free then ask for money beyond a certain time 😆
    The amount of infrastructure they are running to make that 40 minute call happen for free for millions will be losing them loads.

    Maybe most people end their meetings within 40 min. Zoom has a clean, easy to use UI. It has its share of security problems and they are (apparently) fixing them, but I haven't found any major usability problems. My meetings are mostly quick ones ranging from 15 to 30 min

    But I had expected them to remove this limit (or at least double this limit) during the lockdown period when people had to WFH

    "Chinese trash bad, but American trash good!"

    Both are awful.

    Honestly, I didn't know Zoom existed until my company announced they would be changing to it from WebEx.

    Honestly also, Zoom beats WebEx in usability hands down. Although I still have a soft spot for GoToMeeting.

    I didn't know Zoom existed until the news about its security issues rose up.

    Google meet instead, really? Then you're moving from American/chinese trash to mass surveillance, awesome idea to share business information on such a platform, yes.
