Zoom, it seems, is seriously going to fight Microsoft for the corporate user: during the annual presentation Zoomtopia 2022 the company announced the appearance of two new services in its single platform Zoom One, namely mail and calendar.
Many people still think of Zoom as just a video conferencing program, but in fact it already has much more functionality — and with new services it is even closer to products like Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace.
As product manager Joseph Chong notes, Zoom Mail and Calendar are aimed at small and medium-sized businesses that value privacy – the Zoom mail service provides end-to-end encryption of emails sent between users of the service. The new services integrate with other Zoom One capabilities: for example, the calendar includes a “booking” function for meetings, which will allow participants to more easily choose a time for a Zoom meeting.
Accounts can use the @zmail.com domain, and Zoom One Business Plan customers can create their own domains. It is also reported that Google and Microsoft 365 accounts can be used in Zoom mail and calendar.
