    I hope it will be a good conferencing tool, the conferencing tool is really in need nowadays and many are really using it since we are now in a virtual world. I would like to subscribe with this and hopefully get some updates towards this one so that I will know if it’s already out in the market and if it is already been commercialized. Thanks for letting us comment and have a good day.

    I like this company and this is really very useful not just for busiessmen but also to family that lives apart from each other “Zoom, a startup founded by WebEx and Cisco veterans that wanted to make high quality video conferencing and virtual meetings accessible to everyone”, I like how they improve this thing and I have been longing to test this one because a high quality conferencing is really nice to the eye and surely will have a peace of mind.

    WebEx and Cisco really did well on their Zoom company and it’s a big investment, yeah it is really a big investment since a lot of money is involve and lot of sponsors are involve. I like their business since I think it has potential to grow into a much larger targets since it is a well known type of application that some of the people used in chatting or watching videos in their friends or love ones.
