We get it: You love your free Zoom meetings. We’ve loaded them with all the collaboration essentials from video conferencing to screen sharing to group messaging. Aren’t we just so nice?
But, there comes a time when you should step back and consider moving up to our $14.99 a month Pro service. “But why?” you say, hugging your Basic Zoom service close. Let us give you a few reasons.
With your Zoom Basic service, you get unlimited meetings, with unlimited minutes for one-to-one meetings. But if you have a group – 3 to 50 video participants – your meeting cuts out after 40 minutes. So, if you’re having a super important call with, for example, your sales team, a key customer, and your tech support team, you probably don’t want that meeting to time out just as you were starting to resolve the customer’s issue. To be safe and appear totally professional, it would be best to put up the $14.99 for a Pro account. It’s worth it!
Zoom Pro is not just about unlimited minutes. There are several other features that come with Zoom Pro:
Zoom offers a variety of add-on features that give you greater flexibility and reach for your meetings:
Sound like some pretty great options, huh? Well, the first thing you have to do is upgrade to a Pro account, then you can purchase any of these add-ons. You can’t do that with your Basic account.
Great question. You can upgrade in your Zoom Billing center. You can get there through two methods:
In Billing, you can view your current subscription and upgrade your subscription type. If you would like to change your plan from a Basic/Free user to Pro/Paid, select if you want “Yearly plan type” or “Monthly plan type.” Next, you will select the number of Hosts you would like to have on your account and click Subscribe. Then click the Billing tab to enter your credit card information. It’s that easy!
