The confinement in Spain, both last spring, as well as the current local confinements, have triggered the use of video calling applications and online meetings. Among the applications whose use has exploded we find especially with Zoom, one of the most popular of the year, but there are also other names like Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams is an application that originally was born as an application oriented to companies or institutions, but it also has a personal version, to be used outside the work environment. The American firm now seeks to promote these functions in its desktop version, as well as in the app, which will incorporate these personal functions. This will be a weapon against Zoom.

Free video calls all day in Microsoft Teams
These next Christmases promise to be different from other years, because many people will not be able to reunite with their families. To make it easier to stay in touch with friends and family, Microsoft Teams releases new Free video calls that can last up to 24 hours.
In addition, in this modality it will be possible to talk to 49 people at the same time, being able to see their faces in gallery view, or also using the Together Mode feature in the application, which creates a virtual environment in which it puts each person next to the other.
Another striking element is that you will not need an account to enter in these video calls. The creator of said room will be able to share links with the people who want to participate in it and they will be able to put a user name and then enter said video call. If you have the app on your phone, the video call will open directly in the app, otherwise, it will open in the browser.
Microsoft Teams seeks to be in this way a reference application in video calls for the Christmas holidays. Next week we celebrate Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving) in the United States and in a month it will be Christmas. The current situation that prevents many from traveling or being together will mean that these types of apps will once again have a large number of users.
The entry Video calls free of up to 24 hours: the new star feature of Microsoft Teams appears first in The Free Android.
