Microsoft Teams public webinar attendees’ joins will be limited, as we’ve spotted from the Microsoft 365 Roadmap site. 

The popular teleconferencing app is planning to limit public webinar attendee joins to three concurrent devices, as spotted on the site under Feature ID 147098. This change will take effect in early August and is expected to be completed by mid-August over a two-week period. 

Currently, public webinar attendees can use their registration link to join and be present in a webinar with any number of devices. This means that an attendee could join a webinar on their laptop, phone, and tablet at the same time. With the new change, only three concurrent join instances will be allowed for each registration link. This means that attendees can now use only up to three devices to participate in a webinar, but it won’t affect private webinars.

By limiting the number of devices that can be used to join a webinar, Microsoft hopes to make it more difficult for these abuses to occur. The change will only apply to the number of devices that can be used to join a webinar. The number of participants in a webinar, however, will not be affected.

Not too long ago, Microsoft also rolled out a few exciting features to Teams Rooms Premium, and it’s worth checking out.
