The company quickly responded to the increased demand with the launch of a dedicated desktop app.
- Group video calls: Stay in touch with family and friends on a much larger screen compared to using a smartphone.
- Easy to connect: If you’re connected with someone on Facebook, then you’re connected on Messenger. No need to have a phone number, email, or sign up to a new service.
- Multitasking: It’s easy to have Messenger open in one window while you do other things on your computer. Something that’s not possible on a smartphone.
- Notifications: Notifications are available on desktop, but you can still choose to snooze or mute them if you prefer.
- Chat syncing: Easily switch between devices without losing any of your Messenger history.
- Includes all the same Messenger features you already know: Such as Dark Mode and GIFs.
- Zoom’s group calls limited to 100 participants
- Group meetings on Zoom are limited to 40 minutes
- For many people, Zoom is a new service to sign up for
- Billions of people are already on Facebook, nothing new to sign up for
Doing so would allow them to keep their business contacts separate from their personal contacts.
It will also be interesting to see if Zoom can maintain the meteoric growth its seen as businesses transition to operating remotely.
In the past three months, Zoom’s daily active users have jumped from 10 million to over 200 million.
