Zoom announces pricing in Indian rupees for users

Image Description

Video communications platform, Zoom, which has had phenomenal growth in recent times as remote working has become the norm, is trying to further expand its footprint and reach a bigger audience in India. As a part of that endeavour, the US based video-first unified communications platform has announced that it would now support Indian Rupee (INR) as the localized pricing for the India market. 

Indian users can now buy their preferred plans and add-ons in local currency. The announcement is part of Zoom's growing strategic investment and plans to grow in India, where the company already has one office in Mumbai, two data centers in Mumbai and Hyderabad and an upcoming technology center in Bengaluru

The video conferencing company is, in recent times, laying enhanced thrust on its India operations

For paying in Indian rupees, users will be required to choose India as the billing and sold to country and can pay using the credit card option, the company said in a press release today. 

Sameer Raje, India Head, Zoom, said "we are excited to bring the INR buying option to our potential user base in India. Over the last few months, we have seen tremendous growth and support in the market. Our decision to support Indian currency is reinforced by the trust of our customers and we look forward to providing better and more connected services through our platform. India remains a key focus market for Zoom and we will continue striving to grow as an Indian company."

Zoom had recently said that from January to April, it saw a 6,700 percent growth in free user signups in India while the paid user base has grown by at least four times. Zoom said there was enough room for further growth as the way to do office work seems to have changed permanently.

Zoom has also in the last few months announced new features to its platform to make communication more accessible.

  • Is your Twitch login data safe? Yes - for now

    Twitch has moved to reassure users that their private data is safe, shortly after the company suffered a huge data leak.

    The gaming streaming platform Twitch has outlined in a blog post what it knows so far about the "Twitch Security Incident" that reportedly saw all its internal source code and data leaked online.

    Some Twitch users have reported being asked to change their passwords for the service, but the company has not issued a blanket request to do so just yet.

    And despite earlier worries, Twitch has reassured users that their personally identifiable information (PII) was not affected by the hack, meaning details such as names, addresses and credit card information are all safe - although there are still fears that the hacker could have this information in their possession.

    Another hack incoming?

    "We have learned that some data was exposed to the internet due to an error in a Twitch server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party," the Twitch blog post read. "Our teams are working with urgency to investigate the incident."

    "As the investigation is ongoing, we are still in the process of understanding the impact in detail. We understand that this situation raises concerns, and we want to address some of those here while our investigation continues."

    "At this time, we have no indication that login credentials have been exposed. We are continuing to investigate."

    The company noted that it had reset all stream keys, with users available to get new details via the blog post. Depending on which broadcast software you use, you may need to manually update your software with this new key to start your next stream, Twitch added.

    Twitch emphasises that full credit card numbers are not stored by Twitch, so this data was not exposed.

    The details of the hack are still emerging, however Twitch's admission that the leake was due to an internal misconfiguration appears to imply that the attack was malicious and external.

    The leak, posted to 4chan as a torrent estimated at around 125GB in size, was labelled as "part one", suggesting that further data could still be released in the future.

    The data was supposedly obtained just days ago, with the hacker claiming Twitch was aware of the leak - which is thought to contain a range of confidential product roadmaps. 

    The torrent also includes the proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by the platform, as well as data from all other Twitch-owned properties including IGDB and CurseForge, and lots more.
