No 40-Minute Limit This Weekend, So You Can Zoom Away with Mom 

No 40-Minute Limit This Weekend, So You Can Zoom Away with Mom 

We know Mother’s Day will look a little different this year given all that’s going on in the world, so we’ve partnered with Dove to make connecting and celebrating a little easier.

To honor all the amazing and caring moms in our lives, Zoom and Dove will provide unlimited video calls and minutes on free (Basic) Zoom accounts this Mother’s Day weekend. Here’s what you need to know:

  • What: We’re lifting the 40-minute limit on meetings this weekend for free Zoom users
  • When: 7 a.m. EST Saturday, May 9, to 7 a.m. EST Monday, May 11
  • What to do: Nothing; the minutes cap will be automatically lifted for free accounts. Simply start a Zoom meeting and enjoy unlimited meetings all weekend long.

We hope this allows families and loved ones to connect on Zoom for as long as they need and from wherever they are in the world.

To help protect your calls from uninvited guests, all free Zoom accounts require meeting passwords and will have Waiting Rooms on by default starting Saturday, May 9.

Not on Zoom yet? Sign up at and check out our How to Zoom videos to get started.

Be sure to follow Dove and Zoom on Twitter, and show us your virtual celebration using the #ZoomWithMom and #CareIsBeautiful hashtags. And thank you to all of the wonderful moms across the globe for going above and beyond every day!

Update, evening of May 7: Zoom reminds you to never share your meeting ID or password on social media or in any other public forum.
