500 users can join video conferencing in paid version
In the nationwide lockdown caused by Corona, people are using the zoom app quite a lot. Most users doing work from home are using the zoom app for video conferencing. At the end of March, it was included in the list of most downloaded apps on Apple and Google Play Store. In the free version of the app, 100 users and in the paid version 500 users can do video conferencing simultaneously.
The company said – soon the pre-secure version will be launched
The app came into more headlines when the app was accused of hijacking their meeting data and sharing it with Facebook without the wishes of the users. After getting caught in this privacy scandal, there was a lot of controversy about the app. On Wednesday, Zoom announced that they will launch a new version of the app, which corrects all security and privacy-related flaws.
