Zoom Doubles Free Meeting Capacity to 50 Participants, by Far the Largest of Any Video Conferencing Solution

On Track to Support Over Four Billion Annual Meeting Minutes, Zoom Helps its Customers Foster Productive Communications While Lowering Costs

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2015) - Zoom Video Communications, Inc. today announced that it has doubled its standard meeting capacity from 25 to 50 participants for all free and paid users. This increased capacity gives Zoom users the largest free meetings of any product on the market by a significant margin. On track to support more than four billion annual meeting minutes (based on daily usage), Zoom helps its customers foster productive communications while lowering costs.

This new capacity, in addition to Zoom's superior quality of service and recent integrations with Slack and Salesforce, makes Zoom the best value in video collaboration for enterprise as well as small and medium-sized businesses. Imagine a world where everything from small team discussions to companywide meetings happen in an instant over the same platform. Now, the largest teams around the globe can easily come together on Zoom.

"In a 6 month time frame, only 400 minutes were used on our old system. In 1 month of using Zoom, we did 127,000 meeting minutes. Zoom has saved the company thousands," said David Fearing of Asurion. "Zoom saved our global brand over $50,000 in travel costs alone within the first month of service activation," said Jessica Deal of Element Brand.

"Zoom is about quality, simplicity, and a happy experience for our users," said Eric S. Yuan, Zoom's founder and CEO. "As businesses expand globally, our customers expect to be able to conduct productive meetings with larger groups wherever they are. We are focused on building the best product in the world, so we're happy to provide our services to more people with this new expanded meeting capacity."

Pro and Business plans are $14.99 and $19.99 a month, respectively.

Meet Zoom at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, October 4-8, and the Educause Annual Conference in Indianapolis, October 27-30.
