Two Office 365 Message Center notifications bring news about an increase in the number of participants for a Teams group chat to 100 and improvements in shareable links for files. Moving the limit from 50 to 100 for a group chat makes these conversations more flexible. Adding permissions to the sharing links used by Teams gives users more control over how they share information with others.

Does this apply to regular online meetings? We're experiencing issues in larger meetings, that the chat button is missing (intermittently). Does the limit apply in meetings as well?

We had the same problem... I tested today with just the individuals reporting the problem and they were able to use the chat function but they all say it was not there during the larger meeting!

I wonder if this is a 100 user limit or service issues? Hard to tell.

@Ulf Lundqvist we had the same issue and the group was between 50-100 people. Some people had the chat feature visible, others didn't. The ones who didn't have the feature available do have it in all other calls. There must be a limit...maybe it's the first X number of people to join get access? Strange either way.
