To support conferences with the transition from live events to virtual events, Microsoft already increased the limit for free participants for events in Teams, Stream and Yammer for a limited period of time in April.
This increased attendance limit for Microsoft 365 live events enabled organizations to hold meetings and events with up to 20,000 attendees.
However, during the year Microsoft repeatedly extended the free period so that users can continue to host live events using its software.
Now the software giant has extended the temporary limit value increase until June 30, 2021.
Hosting virtual events with Microsoft
Until June next year, live events running via Teams, Stream or Yammer will continue to support up to 20,000 participants, 50 events per tenant and a maximum duration of 16 hours.
When organizers need to host an even bigger virtual event using Microsoft software, they can turn to Support with live events Program to increase the number of participants to 100,000.
As soon as the new deadline for the participant limit in the next year has expired, the organizers must issue a Advanced communication Company’s license to host events for more than 10,000 attendees or for events lasting more than four hours.
Although Covid-19 vaccines are now sold worldwide, it will be some time before large face-to-face gatherings are the order of the day. In the meantime, organizations and conferences can use Teams, Stream or Yammer to host large virtual events.
