Yes, you heard it right. Microsoft Teams will soon support up to 20,000 attendees in meetings as view-only participants.

 

  • Applicable when the attendee is accessing a meeting via a Teams desktop application (Windows or Mac), Teams on the web, or Teams mobile (Android and iOS)
  • The current limit for the number of people who can chat and call in to a meeting is 300 users.
  • Attendees joining after meeting capacity reached will have view-only experience.

Check more about:

  • What is view-only experience?
  • Benefits of view-only experience
  • Impact to meeting presenters
  • How to enable/Disable view-only experience
  • Current limitations of view-only experience
