How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

This is done rolling out and you should all be able to use this function in your Teams now. Ping me at sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com if you have any questions!

    How is this not possible? This keeps us from leaving the free Skype.

    20 limit is too restrictive when using in Education as classes are larger!!!

    If a Teams meeting can hold 250 participants there's no reason you should limit group chats to 20.

    You should inform the user they could create a Team from the group chat or convert it to a Team later on.

    Funny how this has already been a year already. Really a shame that the devs aren't really listening to the people.

    this needs to be updated, lots of people are bing annoyed by this group limit.

    This is so annoying we can't have more then 20 people in this chat. The chat in the teams group is not so nice and very different then this chat. So please make this work it would be a great improvement for teams.

    How can this take so long...? A lot of people are waiting on this and personally this is preventing our team (35) from moving to teams fully.

    We are attempting to use teams as a tool for group co-ordination which involves up to (currently) 30 users... and whilst we can live (regrettably) with only 4 users on screen via video at once, the hard limit of 20 users is a deal breaker for us.

    Please up the limit to something more reasonable (even if development requires incremental rollback)

    Votes here are too low @772, for any fast actions to be taken, let's gather more ppl to vote on this. :). anyway. the idea is!!!! if you have more then 20 ppl in a chat group. then go ahead and Create Teams to collaborate, instead of using Group Chats. If you cannot create, approach your IT Guys to give you rights, to create Teams.

    In the original request, it's asking for a 100-person limit rather than 20: I would argue to do away with an arbitrary limit. Don't put a number on it—just allow chats to have as many people as desired.
