More than 20 participants in a chat
We would like to use group chats for conversations that are not team/work related. However, the 20 participant limit keeps us from using the feature to it's full extent. Please increase the participant limit for group chats from 20 to 100.
Hi everyone, just to reiterate, this is shipping through a slow roll out and will be available in January for all. I’ll update again once it is fully rolled out.
Thank you for your patience and happy holidays!

Please just remove the limit all together. Any arbitrary number that is chosen will eventually be a problem. Thx

Just a one simple sentence..... " TEAMS IS REALLLY REALLY SUCKS"
I have no other words to express how bad it is. We had to use Teams everyday and I'm UI/UX engineer. Your User experience is ZERO. University students could produce better applications than this.
Everyone blames it everyday. Just simply sucks!!!!

Allow more than 20 persons in group chats
The sooner the better. I can't, for the life of me understand why there was such a small limit in the first place? These services are pushed to business and corporations. Our enterprise needs rooms larger than 100. Jabber is old and antiquated yet that has huge rooms.
Any update on the ETA? My employee's are going backwards to Skype for business soon if this isn't released!
Please increase the maximum number of participants. Also - It seems nonsensical that you can't copy DLs directly from Outlook into the 'Add People' dialogue - i seem to have to type each person individually in order to add them.

Would be great at least 50, I have 40 employess on multiple sites that need to communicate daily together everyday. Alsohaving the option to kick somebody out would be appreciated.
Is there any news on when we could add more people to chats? around 60? i personally would do a 100 people limit.
What is the date for this? Really keen to increase the chat group to 50. I have a team of staff and it's unfortunate they can't all be in the chat group. Also the ability to remove people from the chat is difficult when staff leave the business. Can this function be added for the person who creates the group?
Brace yourself - winter is coming...

The update above is dated 7/3/2017, has this limit been removed?
Any head-ups to the number of participants to be increased?
Please make this change soon!
Its a really big deal. We need it in our group chats too!

Can anyone explain why there was a limit in the first place?
Needs ability to add at least 250 if not unlimited members. Also add ability to convert group into Teams if required.
Great news! This winter mean in Nov and Dec 2018?

We should be able to have unlimited number of people added to a chat.. there should be no restriction. It doesn't make sense that this restriction is in place. I'm sure there is some technical reason but from an employees experience the system should not restric in this way.
