Teams Live Events Temporary Default Increases Extended Until October 1


In April, Teams announced that temporary default limit increases would be enabled for Microsoft 365 live events to help better support customers, through July 1.


In order to continue meeting the needs of customers, we will extend the temporary default limits until October 1, 2020.


Live events hosted in Teams will continue to temporarily support events for up to 20,000 attendees, 16 hours in length and 50 events happening simultaneously. Additionally, get help delivering your next live event through the live events assistance program.

I really hope that this will be permanent, at least 16 hours.

@Christina Torok The documentation says, the "Limits extended Until 01 2020". Would we be able to host Live event on October 1st 2020 9:00 AM EST for up to 20,000 participants?
