Whether users are working from the office or connecting to family and friends from home, people are taking the Zoom platform everywhere they go. Zoom has become more than a video communication service, Zoom Founder and CEO Eric Yuan said. “Zoom has become the thing you do,” he added.
That‘s because stay-at-home mandates began rolling out in early 2020 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. As a result, users all over the globe flocked to Zoom to continue to stay connected with loved ones and to keep working remotely and collaborating with colleagues. In fact, Yuan said its platform now hosts more than three trillion annualized meeting minutes, with more than 300 million daily meeting participants.
With millions of users in mind, Zoom took to Zoomtopia 2020, its fourth annual conference and virtual event this year, to reveal several new offerings, such as OnZoom and Zapps, as well as a handful of updates to its Zoom Phone and Webinar platforms, and of course, security updates.
