You use Zoom, but not so much that you’re willing to upgrade to Pro. You have more important things to pay for and aren’t too happy about paying for a Zoom account. Sure, you can use the free version, but that’s only going to give you about 40 minutes of meeting time.
You may have limited time for your meetings with a free account. However, you can still do things such as rename yourself and communicate with others without saying a word. But, what can you do when you need more than 4o minutes that one time? Here are a few tips you can try to get those extra minutes you need.
How to ByPass the 40-Minute Time Limit on a Free Zoom Account
When the time is almost up on your Zoom meeting, you’ll see a clock at the top with the remaining time. When the meeting ends, you can continue with the meeting by telling your participants to re-join with the same ID and password. Repeat this as many times as you need to for more time. The inconvenience is having to sign on again, but at least you get that extra time you need.
You can also create a new Zoom account with a temporary email address. Since it will be your first meeting, it will have unlimited time for the first two meetings. It can get annoying to create an account with a temporary email address, but if you’re only going to need it once or twice, it’s a great fix. When the meeting is over, Zoom will ask you if you want to schedule your next meeting; tap the yes option. The following meeting should also not have a time limit. But, the third meeting will have a time limit, and that’s when you need to create another free account and start all over.
If you don’t want to deal with all the inconveniences, you can always upgrade to Pro. Try it for a while to see if it’s what you’re looking for. You can try paying monthly at first, and when you want to call it quits, you can simply cancel. Which method do you think you’re going to try first?
