Zoom is planning to launch its own email service soon


Zoom is working on an email service and calendar apps as it looks to expand and establish itself as a software giant. These apps, as per the report, could be called Zmail and Zcal, respectively. Zoom is expected to make the product announcement at its annual Zoomtopia conference which is likely to take place in November this year.

Zoom gained a lot of attraction during the coronavirus pandemic when everyone was working from home and needed a good video conferencing app for casual or work meetings. Now, it appears that the company is targeting other areas like the email service. If this is actually the case, then Zoom will face stiff competition from popular apps. It will likely be difficult for Zoom to persuade users to switch to its email service.

Google’s Gmail app is widely used by a lot of users worldwide for both work and casual purposes. In 2018, the company revealed that Gmail has about 1.5 billion active users and this number has likely gone up in the past four years. According to data shared by Litmus, Apple’s email service is used more than Gmail. It has about 57.72 percent market share, whereas Gmail holds about 29.43 percent share. Microsoft’s Outlook is reportedly in the third position with a 4.33 percent market share.

Zoom has renamed its chat product and added some features, including third party integration. The video calling app’s calling feature, now known as Zoom Team Chat, will also include features such as the ability to share in-meeting chat to Team Chat, schedule a meeting from chat or channel. Moreover, the features will be released by the end of the month.
