This year, we’ve depended on our laptops, tablets, and smartphones like never before. As holiday gatherings are being threatened by the current rise in COVID-19 cases, a video chat may be the only way we’ll see some of our family and friends for a while. The folks at Zoom are doing something to help us make more of those online connections over Thanksgiving.

Normally, a Zoom call on a free account is limited to 40 minutes. If you want more time, you have to register for a paid plan. Those go for about $150-$200 per year for unlimited meeting minutes.

According the Business Insider, Zoom is loosening up its rules for Thanksgiving. They’ll be temporarily lifting their 40-minute call limit on free accounts. The unlimited Zoom calling will run from 12:00 AM on Thursday, November 26th through 6:00 AM on Friday, November 27th. That’s 30 hours of virtual quality time over turkey and pie with your loved ones.
