Zoom Launches Hardware Subscription Service For its Customers
You all must be thinking that how Zoom is manufacturing the hardware. Well, it’s not. The company has collaborated with third-party hardware manufacturers like DTEN, Neat, Poly, and Yealink for the phone and meeting room hardware devices.
According to the data shared by company’s website, the cost of hardware services for Zoom Phone depends on the device which the user chooses and it ranges between $5.99 and $60 per month. On the other hand, the price for hardware services for Zoom Rooms ranges between $75 to $200 per month.
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Zoom has earned immense popularity due to its resourcefulness in online education and virtual meetings. But as more people started to use the app, there were some concerns over privacy and security issues, forcing it to roll out major upgrades.
The company also became a part of a list of major US internet companies which includes Facebook, Microsoft, and Alphabet’s Google, to have suspended processing of requests for user data from Hong Kong authorities while they study the new law.
