In order to become more competitive with Zoom during the outbreak, Microsoft Teams continuously improved the quality of its services in addition to providing consumers with some advanced features free of charge. Earlier this month, Microsoft updated Its team’s roadmap to increase the number of attendees from the existing 250 to 300. And the change is officially launched today.
Mike Tholfsen, product manager for the Microsoft EDU team, confirmed the changes on Twitter. Microsoft announced that Teams can now invite up to 300 attendees to the meeting at the same time.
Microsoft noted that teams for Government (GCC, GCC High, DoD) participants remain limited to 250 people. But when the government limit increases from 250 to 300, Microsoft will update its Docs page. Microsoft has also prepared a bunch of features for Teams users, including a 7×7 grid, a student group room, and more. Last month, the company added the ability to pop chat sips into a private window, as well as official support for custom backgrounds.
