Dear Community, I was wondering why Microsoft limited only to four(4) people in a video conference, currently we've had a 15 people to join a townhall in our company but only four persons in a video call are allowed. As far as i know the limit of video calls are up to 20people https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#meetings-and-calls
|Number of people in a meeting||250|
|Number of people in a video or audio call from chat||20|

Currently you will only see four active speakers, that will be increased to nine soon (May). So if you are 15 people in the meeting the 4 (9 soon) latest active speakers will be shown with their video.
If you have a group chat you will only be able to start a video conference from that if you are 20 participants or less in that group chat.
If you schedule a meeting or invite to a meeting you can be 250 participants in that meeting.

Actually my problem is the opposite :=). Now that they rolled out the 9 video support, Microsoft Surface Go is struggling with decoding and displaying all videos. This results in system being very sluggish and unresponsive. I was wondering if there is a way to limit the number of videos (i.e. 4 as before) that would appear simultaneously on the screen.

Thanks Raymond for raising the question. I have a follow-up one:
Dear Community, We know now it is possible to see up to 49 video attendees in 'Together mode' or in 'Large gallery' in one screen, what if there are 150 participants, are we able to see the next set of 49 people videos in this mode? In zoom you can go to the next page directly. Accoring to Zoom the max supported number is 147 (screen by screen). What is the maximum videos attendees in MS Teams meeting? Thanks

@MHB777 You should be able to see multiple page with 9 (Gallery) or 49 videos (Large gallery). So if you are more than 49 participants with video on page 1 you can switch to page 2.

@Alex_Zwetz You can set that video should be turned off for attendees.
