Mobile Time reports that Zoom has been registering a dizzying growth since the beginning of the pandemic because of social distancing measures. In December 2019, the maximum number of Zoom video conference participants in a single day had been 10 million people. Five months later, in April 2020, the maximum number in one day was 300 million, that is, a growth of thirty times.
