What you need to know

  • Up to 300 people can now participate in a Microsoft Teams meeting.
  • Microsoft has increased several limits over the past few months to meet demand.
  • Teams for Government is still limited to 250 participants in a meeting.

Microsoft recently increased the maximum number of participants within a Microsoft Teams meeting to 300. The increased limit should help larger organizations and teams be able to communicate at once. The meeting limit increase is the latest increase for Microsoft Teams over the past few months to meet a growing demand for its service. Microsoft breaks down the limit increase and other limits in an online doc (opens in new tab) (via Neowin). Microsoft specifies that Teams for Government is still limited to 250 participants in a meeting.

Microsoft Teams has been put in the limelight as more people work and teach from home. As a result of growing demand, Microsoft has increased limits for Microsoft Teams, including seeing nine people on a video call at once. Microsoft also outlined in its roadmap (opens in new tab) that the limit for group chat participants will increase from 100 to 250.
