Microsoft will increase the limit for meeting participants this month. Previously, meetings in Microsoft Teams were capped at 250 participants. This will increase up to 300 participants this month, according the Office 365 Roadmap (via OnMSFT). The Office 365 Roadmap lays out plans for changes, and the new feature could be bumped back. For now, the increase meeting limits is set to roll out this month.
As reported by Office 365 for IT Pros, the limit for group chats and meetings temporarily increased to 350 on Microsoft Teams. Now, that limit has dropped down to 300. When Microsoft upped the limit to 350, it was to test out the increased limit. Microsoft quickly decided to go with a slightly smaller maximum.
Meeting limits aren't the only thing Microsoft plans to increase in Teams. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed to CRN that increasing the number of viewable people in video calls to 49 is on Microsoft's roadmap. Currently, Microsoft Teams can only show nine people on a call at once. Increasing that figure to 49 would bring Microsoft Teams in line with Zoom. The Microsoft spokesperson did not specify a timeframe for increased viewable participants in video calls.
Microsoft Teams allows you to collaborate with colleagues, upload files, send messages, and chat through video. It integrates with Office 365 and several other cloud services.
