The Zoom video calling platform made very popular during the first months of the pandemic of the coronavirus, a use that is still strong today, thanks to the free plan that it offered and continues to offer today with a time limitation.
However, it seems that the accounts do not add up and the company has announced that will start showing ads on the free plan, advertisements that will allow you to obtain additional income to pay for servers, bandwidth, employees … Let’s remember that Zoom is not an NGO.
This measure should help keep Zoom free for anyone who wants to continue using it without paying a single euro.
In a publication blog detailing the change, Zoom says that millions of users worldwide use their service for free, highlighting that it is “important to Zoom that we can continue to provide our products and services to our users.”
As part of that, the company will start showing ads, but only on the screen that appears after a call has ended so that we will not see any advertisements during your calls.
For this starter program, ads will be deployed only on the browser page that users see after their meeting ends. Only free Basic users in certain countries will see these ads if they join meetings hosted by other free Basic users.
Ads displayed after a call ends they will not be intrusiveAlthough the blog post states that, in the future, the position of the ads may change in the future.
Privacy the order of the day
Advertising if it is not targeted, it’s no use And yes, let them tell Facebook or Google.
It won’t take long to know if Zoom analyzes the environment of the participants of a call to focus the advertising that shows each of the participants in the meeting.
Or maybe analyze video call audios in real time to display ads related to the topics that have been covered.
If we take into account that Zoom got off to a very bad start at not encrypt video calls that were stored on their servers, as the saying goes, think badly and you will be right.
