Attendee Limit Increase for Live Events Hosted with Microsoft 365

As more in person meetings, classes, conferences and communications move to an online format, Microsoft has been listening to our customers and their needs in order to help navigate the changing remote work landscape.  


Many organizations are adopting online meetings to support initiatives from distance learning with students, to day-to-day workplace activities like recurring project checkpoints that help keep employees connected and productive.   


For organizations that need a way to reach many people at scale, Microsoft 365 live events enable you to deliver an immersive video broadcast to large audiences with interactive conversation, questions and answers. Live events can be hosted in Teams or Yammer, or you can create a customized event experience using Microsoft Stream to support the largest-scale broadcasts. 


Beginning today, to help support our customers, through July 1, Microsoft will enable custom events for as many as 100,000 attendees from inside or outside your organization through our live events assistance program.  


  • Teams Meetings for up to 250 participants
  • Live events for up to 10,000 attendees hosted in Teams and Yammer
  • Live events for up to 100,000 attendees hosted in a customized event experience using Microsoft Stream
  • On-demand recordings for unlimited numbers of viewers so anyone who could not participate during the live event, doesn’t miss out. 

We hope that these meeting and live event solutions, and increased attendee limits will help customers address the growing need for large scale communications.
