Microsoft Teams has brought a free all day video and voice calling option to take on some platforms like Zoom and Google Meet. It will help users to connect with up to 300 participants for, guess what, as much as 24 hours.
The announcement by Microsoft comes days after Teams rival Zoom announced that it would lift its 40-minute meeting limit temporarily on Thanksgiving Day.
Microsoft Teams, in addition to free all day calling, is getting updated with the ability to create a group chat with over 250 people and keep an eye on up to 49 members simultaneously during conversations virtually.
As per the report, the company is all set to attract the Zoom users with its new free all day video calling option. The company confirmed the same through a blog post.
“To help you stay connected in the coming months, you will be able to meet for 24 hours with up to 300 participants until further specified,” the company stated.
Meanwhile, the users can join a virtual call without even requiring a Microsoft Account or the Teams app.
A host can invite individuals on Microsoft Teams through a link that can be accessed directly from a Web browser. This is just similar to Zoom, Google Meet, and other similar video conferring platforms.
