Download Zoom for Video Calls of up to 1,000 Participants During Work From Home (WFH)
“Zoom cloud meeting is a video call or video conference application for up to 1,000 participants available for multiple platforms.“
Zoom is one of the multi-platform cloud meeting applications that can be used to work from home during the government’s recommended work from home (WFH).
As is known, President Joko Widodo requested that every company implement WFH to break the chain of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in Indonesia.
“For companies and the government to also work from home […] This is once again to reduce movement because social distancing is critical,” Jokowi said in a limited meeting via teleconference at Bogor Palace on March 16, 2020.
One of the advantages of Zoom is that it supports up to 1,000 participants. That is, video conferencing or video calls can be done with 1,000 people at once.
However, this feature is only supported by those who subscribe to the Enterprise Plus package, which is priced starting at 19.99 dollars per month. Does Zoom provide a free kit?
