Calendly to Offer Free Zoom and GoToMeeting Integrations Through June to Help Remote Workers

As the tech community continues to reel from the effects of social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, Atlanta-based meeting scheduling software company Calendly will offer integrations with Zoom and GoToMeeting free of charge through June 30th.

The company made the decision to offer these previously Premier Tier options to help remote workers manage their schedules during the crisis. The company will continue to offer customers the option to use Google Hangouts/Meet for free as well.  

Calendly also plans to provide free premium plan access to researchers and teams helping to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. 

“This is the best way we know to help remote workers and do our part as a company,” Calendly founder and CEO Tope Awotona said in a statement.
