Zoom is not for nothing that it is so popular with users, because it allows you to organize and participate in online events with a large number of users, and do it completely free of charge. This means that such an important option is provided in the basic tariff, which is provided to users after registering on the platform. However, owners of free accounts are limited in their capabilities. So, for example, the maximum allowed conversation duration for them is only 40 minutes. The same applies to the number of participants in the conference – it is not unlimited. What are the limitations imposed by the Creator of the software? Let’s talk about this in our article today.
Users of basic free accounts can organize an online conversation with up to a hundred participants. It is the figure of one hundred people that is the limitation that we discussed above. The duration of the event in this case can not exceed 40 minutes, but if we are talking about a conversation between two people, its duration is unlimited.
Is it possible to increase the number of conference participants? According to advanced users, this feature is provided, but to use it, you need to sign up for a paid subscription. We have already discussed how to do this earlier.
The most affordable tariff from a financial point of view is “Professional”, it costs $ 14.99. per month. However, you will have to enable an additional option called “Big conference”. There are two ways to do this:
- if the number of participants does not exceed 500 people, you need to pay an additional 50 dollars. per month.
- if there are a thousand participants, the additional payment will be $ 90 per 30 days.
By the way: to the specified amounts, you should add the cost of the tariff per month, that is, the above-mentioned $ 14.99. If you are satisfied with this option, you can proceed to payment.
Instead of a conclusion
We talked about how many users can participate in online conferences at the same time, if we are talking about free accounts. The number of one hundred people in most cases is enough to use the functionality of the program. If this is not enough, you will have to sign up for a paid subscription, but not all users of the platform can afford it.
