Is Teams Live the same as Teams Webinar?

New Contributor

Hi there,


I'm setting up a live presentation to approximately 1000 members of staff, and would like to use Teams Live Event but in my meeting options, I only have the Webinar option.  Are they essentially the same thing with the same functionality?

Not the same thing, no. This article has a detailed comparison:
You'll probably need to ask an administrator in your org to enable Live event scheduling for you.

Thank you, I appreciate the response; after posting the question I went hunting for some video clips on functionality and recognise they are different now.  It's just a shame that my organisation has switched off Live as that would be a much better platform on which to deliver my event.


Thanks again.
