It is anticipated that communicating through video conferencing will continue to be important, while trying to adapt to the lifestyle referred to as the “new normal” after a new type of coronavirus outbreak that affects the whole world. DingTalk and VooV are also globally launched in this sense.
Although restrictions are eased in many countries due to the virus, video conferencing is considered as a safe and comfortable method of communication, both as a business and as a means of socialization. The California-based American communications technology company Zoom, which has become the communication tool chosen by millions of people, has outperformed the products of much larger rival companies such as Microsoft and Google. However, Zoom will now compete with major technology companies in China.
Beijing temporarily blocked the international version of Zoom in September and opened the market to local companies such as Alibaba’s DingTalk and Tencent-supported VooV.
DingTalk and VooV Application
DingTalk, the video conferencing application that has made great progress since then, announced that it is used by 120 million students as well as 10 million businesses in China. With many people starting to work from home, DingTalk has increased the number of people who can attend a video conference to over 300.
Alibaba launched the international application DingTalk Lite in the Asian market in April. The application is available in Japanese, English and Chinese. China’s computer games giant Tencent, too, opened its video conferencing application internationally two weeks ago.
The application that Tencent launched on the international market in December and where more than 300 people can participate is VooV; It is used in many countries, including India, Japan, and Singapore. China increased the restrictions it applied to Zoom in early May.
Daily Zoom Participants 300 Million
According to the data released by Zoom, the number of daily active meeting participants of the company reaches 300 million. However, it does not publish data on the number of daily users or registered users.
According to the analysis company Transparency Market Reserach, the global market value of video conferencing technology, which was $ 6 billion last year, is expected to reach $ 16 billion by 2030.
