I have registered my organization's email on MS teams and made various channels to conduct meetings with my employees. Currently, I'm using the free version of MS teams. I wanted to clear a few of my queries.

1. The number of maximum participants allowed to actively participate in a video call on a particular channel.

2. I know for a reason that each channel can start its Video chat with the channel members. Is there any limit to the number of channels on which Video calls can be conducted simultaneously.

3.Duration of a video call.

Hi @akshathtiwari ,

 

You may want to refer to:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/differences-between-microsoft-teams-and-microsoft-teams-f...

And https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams

 

More specifically to your point, despite you using the Free version of Teams, storage limitations aside, as long as the feature is available in the free version, you would then just default to general Teams limitations:

1. The number of maximum participants allowed to actively participate in a video call on a particular channel.

 

300

 

2. I know for a reason that each channel can start its Video chat with the channel members. Is there any limit to the number of channels on which Video calls can be conducted simultaneously.

 

None that spring to mind. I am sure you could hit a limit but I think you would have to go some.

 

3.Duration of a video call. 

I know there is a 4 hour duration limit on a Live event but not a regular meeting as such.

In the documentation there is the concept of expiration from when a meeting is started or updated. So possibly 8 hours. But not sure if that is what it means but feel free to decipher yourself. As for a Meet Now it says Start Time+ 8 hours and it is not applicable to be extended, that is how I landed on 8 hours.

 

Thanks
