Talk about expanding the limits. Microsoft is all set to expand the limit of 300 participants in Teams meetings chat that itself was increased earlier this year.
But now, the software titan is working to push the limit to 1,000.
As noted in the product roadmap, the feature is currently under development and is scheduled to roll out later this month. Alongside this increased participant limit, Redmond is also planning to make the following changes on January 1, 2021.
- Up to 20,000 attendees per event
- Up to 50 simultaneous events per Team tenant
- Up to 16 hours per broadcast
While the increased participant limit is expected to be rolled out for everyone, the rest of the features will be part of the company’s Advanced Communication addon for Teams, the license fee for which costs $12 per user per month. It is available as a free trial for 60 days.

Microsoft Teams has seen titanic growth in recent months, with Microsoft announcing last week that the platform is seeing increased usage during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The number of daily active users surpassed 115 million, from 75 million six months ago.
Teams also recently picked up support for features like live transcription, Spotlight, to go with a revamped notification settings page.
