Tencent Cloud is deepening its presence in the unified communications business, after launching a cloud-based conferencing tool as the world shifts towards remote offices.

VooV Meeting, which is the international version of Tencent Meeting, is a cloud conferencing tool designed for enterprises across more than 100 countries.

During the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, Tencent Cloud will provide global users with complimentary access to the software, which can be used to connect up to 300 participants at once.
