Microsoft Teams will soon be upgraded up to 1000 participants. According to the company sources, the Microsoft Teams will be able to accommodate up to 1000 participants. With COVID-19 pandemic spreading like wildfire, people have been extensively making effective use of video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams. The ability to collaborate among several people will enable product teams to work effectively. Microsoft Teams currently provides support for 300 people, which might not be enough for large companies.

The demand for accomodating additional people was larger and hence the Redmond-based software giant has reportedly decided to provide support for up to 1000 participants. The 1000 user support was originally announced in July and was added to the Microsoft 365 roadmap. The new feature release has been pushed to November.

In addition, to increasing the participant count, Microsoft also announced that the view-only presentations limit will be increased to 20000 starting January 2020. You will be able to host up to 50 events and live event up to 16 hours.

Microsoft Teams has received a huge spike in usage due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The schools and colleges have leveraged the full potential of Microsoft Teams by imparting lessons to students. With only five months left for the closure of the academic year, it remains to be seen as to whether schools will continue to employ Microsoft Teams. According to sources, Microsoft Teams has the potential to withstand 115 million daily active users.

Microsoft Teams have been used by several professionals. The tool is not much popular among ordinary people since they have become familiar with Zoom and Google Meet. You should note that Cisco’s Webex is also very popular among IT professionals, developers, and engineers.
