In a startling revelation, popular video meet app has meekly admitted it does not have over 300 million daily active users (DAUs) but these are actually the numbers of meeting participants.
In a recent blog post, Zoom declared it more than 300 million DAUs users "around the world are using Zoom during this challenging time".
The California - based company later deleted these references from the original blog post, claiming "300 million daily Zoom meeting participants".
First caught by The Verge, Zoom has admitted the mistake and posted it on the original blog post.
"This blog originally referred to meeting participants as â€˜users' and â€˜people. '
This was an oversight on our part.
The blog also correctly used the term participants, but not consistently.
The oversight was corrected, " said the company.
Daily meeting participants can be counted multiple times during the video meet call but a DAU is counted once per day, and is used by companies to measure service usage.
