And over half of them (52 percent) appreciate having a choice between virtual and physical meetings as they feel “hybrid workplaces will save time and provide convenience.”

“India adjusted and adopted video call platforms rapidly. It wasn’t just a shift in technology but in behavioural mindset as well,” Sameer Raje, General Manager & Head of India, Zoom, said in a statement.

“As we look forward to a hybrid world, Zoom is ready to empower organisations with solutions that ensure physical safety and virtual security of their hybrid workforce. We are excited to see the role of video unfolding in the future,” Raje added.

In India’s sector-specific dive, the report finds that the most common use of video calls is seen in education (72 percent), celebration/social gatherings (62 percent), events (59 percent), entertainment (58 percent), business (50 percent) and a sector that gained prominence during the pandemic — telehealth (42 percent).

More than 90 percent of respondents feel that virtual and remote activities have helped them stay connected with others during this period, while 75 percent said that these activities helped to improve emotional health, the survey revealed.

When it comes to business travel, 39 percent expect to travel more post-pandemic, while 37 percent expect less travel than in the pre-Covid era.

The company said that it emerged as one of the top video calling apps in India, having high levels of awareness (85 percent) and usage (72 percent) and 61 percent of respondents using it over seven days.

The survey included 7,689 respondents from the US, the UK, Mexico, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, India, Singapore, and Australia from March 15 to March 26, 2021.
