Limit on video calling on Teams

Due to Corona virus our teachers start working on MS Teams for remote teaching, but they are asking me what is the limit on video calling because some students they have camera on their laptops but the teacher can not see them.

Please tell me if there is a limit on the number of videos call on TEAMS

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for your swift reply, but my concern is how many participants can join video call on the same time.

I am confused since I can not find a clear sentence on this.

thank you in advance

They're both 250. The video call keeps the same limit as Teams meeting. 

250 for a meeting. 20 for private chat. In video calls, the last 4 speakers are displayed as ‘quarters’ of the screen.

Shawn,

For the free version of teams can you also have 250 in a video call?

The answer is NO. For the Teams for free, it keeps the same limit with Skype, it's 50.

If you still have more concern, please kindly post a new thread in community, so that we can help you better for your problem.

And I hope you and your family are in the best of health and not affected by Covid -19.

Take care :)

Shawn

I tried a group video chat with my colleagues and we were only about to get a maximum of 4 videos on the screen, the other 3 people in the chat with us were only through voice, not video. Can I get more than 4 videos to show up?

Jessica,

I'm sure someone officially will reply but Teams will show the last 4 people speaking but sometimes with background noise and people jumping in and out you won't see them talk. We were trying to do a "virtual happy hour" but it was harder to play the games since we had to have folks speak and get them to show up on the screen so we leveraged the chat more.

Ok so is that why when I was communicating through video, the 4 people on the screen kept changing to allow another person in? Do you know or have you had success in having more than just 4 people being seen on the screen?

Which limit applies for the NYCDOE use of Microsoft. Also, I'm confused on how to turn off private chats within the video meet?

That's an expected behaviour. The desktop client only supports up to 4 by now, and some web browsers may only display one person in a video call, like Chrome. Our D&R team is accelerating to increase the number of participants shown in the main meeting window. We don't have an exact timetable for it, but it will not take too long.

Best,

Shawn
