For corporate users, since generally they have E3 license assigned to use Ms Outlook, Office365 etc.
It comes with free Ms Teams.
As long as Microsoft don't shoot themselves in the feet (as they used to) by messing up with Ms Teams, Zoom shares in corporate usage is going to be reduced.
Time is friend to the product/ company with competitive advantage, in this case, Zoom is not!

Hi fallscushion,

100%.

That said I will never completely count Eric Yuan out. Let's see what he can come up with over the next few years. They have plenty of cash flows, profits and users to try out many things.

Agree.
I wouldnt want to ever underestimate the single-minded, passionate & driven dudes.
I did it more than once with Tesla.
In this ever changing tech sector, perhaps the main moat is the crazy dudes driving the companies.

But as it is now, Zoom is losing out.

To be honest, whenever we use the word "long term" on technology growth stocks, I tend to get scared. Case in point, ZOOM was nothing before the pandemic, and everything after that (It is used as a verb now, just like SCOTCH tape or GOOGLE the answer).

Why Zoom Video Communications Looks Attractive To Me Now

With an enticing valuation and room to grow, I think Zoom will provide joy for patient investors of the company. Although the company’s stock price is likely going to be volatile, the long-term outlook remains rosy.

Anecdotally, I'm using the Verb "Teams Meeting" more everyday.

It's the default meetings app in my workplace. 

(not vested in Microsoft or Zoom)

I find that the interface for Zoom is still the best all in one window rather than multiple windows for Teams which can be confusing when you already have multiple work windows opened; and maybe more stable as it doesn't try to integrate IM. It is also the default meeting app in my workplace after Zoom was discovered hosting in China last year (which they rectified)

Webex by Cisco seems stable but less flexible while VooV which looks like copycat, doesn't do hardware acceleration?

Didn't really use Google Meet or new FaceTime

Just my own personal experience; keen to know if others experience differently?

Yes, the largest employer is using Microsoft Teams or CISCO webex.

It might be a biased sample, considering how we are only considering from the POV as Singapore consumers when in fact the entire world might be using different apps from us
