Microsoft is rolling out a major upgrade to its chat-based workspace app Microsoft Teams. The service is already included as part of Office 365 enterprise plans, and it’s being used by thousands of organizations worldwide.
Microsoft Teams is mostly perfect for small businesses, but there are a couple of limitations for bigger organizations: one of them being the number of members that you can add to a team in your organization. For months, Microsoft has limited the number of users per team to only 999 which is quite low for organizations who have lots and lots of employees. With this week’s update, Microsoft Teams now supports up to 2500 members per team — this includes regular and guest accounts.
The increased limit for the number of users per team should help large organizations that are looking to move to Teams. The change will specifically benefit those moving away from Skype for Business, which is being replaced by Microsoft Teams in the coming months.
