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!

    Yes, update please - this has become crucial to our use of Teams as our physical team has grown and while we are able to use it for under 20 people chats, there is a need to efficiently use it for greater (for us it would be less than 50 currently, but that could grow quickly soon enough).

    Can you please provide an update? This 20-person limit is unreasonably low and preventing our organization from moving to Teams.

    I went to use it today for a team chat and the 20 person limit also stopped me from using it. Surely it's a simple thing to increase the number. Would be so beneficial to a lot of people. We are moving from skype to teams but this will seriously hamper us!

    Why am I not surprised to learn this? Just when I needed to add some people in my Sales Team to the group chat and it says that I can't. Thanks Microsoft! Boooooo Hissssss Booooo

    Yet again you design a product with so much potential and then put utter ridiculous restrictions on it, firstly the 'General' option on every team that you cannot change or delete. you design a system to help companies collaborate in one workspace and then place restrictions on it!!! We have 104 people in our company across two sites, we need one chat with Teams to keep our collaboration in one application, 20 users per brain cannot understand your logic behind this????? I now have to try and explain to my CEO why the team cannot switch from Skype!!!

    20 people limit for a chat is just wrong. Can't use the system at full capacity with this limitation. Will move to an alternative

    My team had to quit using the chat feature due to this awful limitation. Really can't understand why there's a limit of 20. Not even 50, SMH.

    We can really really use this feature in our company. Everyone wants to move backwards into Skype again solely because of this feature.
