Contrary to other sectors of the economy that have been badly affected by the pandemic, Zoom has benefited from millions of workers having to transition to working from home, and also being chosen as the top used platform for holding meetings. Zoom’s popularity soared thanks to millions of people using it as a way to stay in touch. Institutions like schools, museums and even churches have been using Zoom to perform their usual operations.
