More than 75 million people now use Microsoft’s Teams every day, and more than 100,000 employees from more than 20 companies are using the app, according tomedia. Currently, the app’s group chats are limited to 100 people. Now, Microsoft has decided to raise the cap to 250, taking into account the new crown outbreak. This update is being rolled out to users and all pushes are expected to be completed by the middle of this month.
Like the previous 100-crowd limit, Microsoft also has controls to prevent chat rooms from turning into an explosion of information interference. For example, once there are more than 20 people in a chat room, you turn off the following features: Outlook auto-reply and Teams status information, input metrics, video and audio calls, sharing, and reading receipts.
This will be a welcome update for those who need an update. While it doesn’t significantly improve the core functionality of the team, it should help large companies that need large groups of chat.
