(Meredith) -- This Thanksgiving, you will be able to use Zoom to virtually see your family with no time limit.

Zoom, the video conferencing service that has become a staple in 2020, typically offers free video chats for up to 40 minutes. If you want to hold meetings and calls longer than 40 minutes, users must pay a minimum fee of $15 per month.
