According to computerworld.com, that number was up 45 percent from the week before and 90 percent from the pre-COVID-19 weekly average.
During the same record-breaking week, Zoom Cloud Meetings in the U.S leapt 14 times their Q4 2019 weekly average. Downloads were 20 times more than the weekly average in the UK and a staggering 55 times more in Italy.
