FROM MICROSOFT CORPORATION
We are pleased to announce that the number of participants that can be viewed simultaneously during a Teams meeting will increase from 4 to 9. Additionally we are working on increasing this limit even further so that more participants can be viewed simultaneously.
We’ll begin rolling this out in late April and expect to be complete by early May.
This change is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 63341How does this affect me?
We are increasing the number of participants shown on the stage to 9 and making it video optimized. For more than 9 participants, we will prioritize those with video on and show them on the stage. Participants with audio will be shown below the meeting stage. Top rovide a high audio and video quality experience, the layout logic will consider user bandwidth and alter the number of videos shown to provide the best meeting experience.
What do I need to do to prepare?
You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
