Video conferencing platform Zoom has had a blockbuster year, with its stock price rising more than 500% due to the unprecedented surge in remote work brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. But now the company is looking to expand beyond workplace video chat and into new territories; specifically, email and calendar services, according to a new report from The Information.
The company is already working on the email product, which the report states will be a web email service Zoom may begin testing as early as next year. The calendar app appears farther off and it is unclear if development has even started. However, both ideas are smart avenues for Zoom to explore, especially if companies start bringing employees back to the office and reliance on videoconferencing declines as COVID-19 vaccine distribution picks up through 2021.
