Zoom; the leading online video app for meetings; in an official statement mentioned that the platform will now expand to include paid events. The announcement was made on Wednesday; with an aim to provide support to performers, teachers and others to earn a living through their skills.

He further added, “The tough time we’re going through has taught us that working remotely is possible. The future of communications will now be an enhanced version of the best physical and virtual practices”.
