“Yandex” also created its own service for video conferencing “Yandex.Teleconference”. In fact, it is similar to the popular app Zoom. The truth is, the “Teleconference” quite a lot of restrictions. The scheme of service classic. A conference can be created by any user and in order to join it just click the invite link.

it Works in “Yandex.The browser” Google Chrome in PC and laptops, on mobile browsers yet. On smartphones it was placed in the application “Yandex.Disc” and “Yandex.Mail.” On iPad the service is not working at all, even through the application of “Yandex”. Yet and many features to the users of such services. For example, no security settings, access to the conversation can get anyone who has the link to this conference. There is a limit on the number of participants, 35 people, but the limit on the duration of the conference no, unlike popular Zoom.

Vladimir Rusinov, head of service “Yandex.Teleconference”: “We do a lot of what I think a lot about some things that we want to develop. At this stage we focus on the fact that, first, it is a service. In this interface with one-click. But on the other hand, the meeting time is absolutely not limited to”.

to Earn on the service “Yandex” is not planning, at least not yet. But I must say that during the epidemic of the coronavirus and mass remote services, video conferencing has gained an incredible popularity. The most notable of them Zoom announced daily audience of 300 million people. After the weakening of quarantine restrictions in the world the number has decreased, but still remains very high, according to the latest data it’s about 200 million users a day. About 100 million reported Google Meet, about 75 million Microsoft Teams.

In Russia, one of the most successful services, video calls the social network “Schoolmates”, she has invested in this technology. Now “Classmates” support for up to 100 people in one call, and work applications, tAK in your browser without registration. The same technology embedded in the mail Mail.ru and in social network “Vkontakte”, it also belongs to Mail.ru. Its daytime audience for these services, the company has not yet opened, but said that their popularity is growing steadily.

Facebook declined to share their profits with the Australian media and said that is ready to refuse from the news on its site. As The Guardian reports, so the company reacted to the idea of the Australian Commission for protection of competition. The one in April said that it would require Google and Facebook to pay local publications for the use of their content. The occasion was the reduction of income from media advertising during the crisis due to the coronavirus. Then it was about the transfer of the media some part of the advertising revenue from Facebook.

Detailed terms promised to publish later. And here Facebook responded to this idea. The company said that in this case, it will be easier and not to publish news content. She explains the decision that the refusal of the news will not bring her any losses. Facebook emphasizes, two years ago, the social network raised the priority of records from friends, colleagues and relatives, then people are less likely to see posts from the media. Moreover, the company believes that the rejection of the news feed will only hurt yourself publications.

According to Facebook from January to may this year, the Australian media has received more than two billion passages via Facebook and had earned almost $ 200 million. The debate on whether social networks and news aggregators to pay media for the use of the content is not new, and while the publication is more to lose. The most telling example of the situation five years ago, which developed in Spain. Local authorities similarly ordered aggregators, primarily Google News to pay content creators. In response, Google just decided to close news service in Spain and the local media have lost audience. After a brief struggle all back to the scheme free of work. On the otherhand, there is the example of the United States, where Facebook launched a separate section in app Facebook News, where there are publications from selected media, such as Bloomberg, the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and these publications for the use of content Facebook still get paid.
