Date:

While the software giant launched Microsoft Teams for consumers on mobile earlier this year, it’s now bringing Teams’ friends and family features to the desktop and web allowing you to create a Microsoft Teams meeting for up to 300 friends and family that can run all day free of charge.

It is not necessary for to have a microsoft account for the same, you can directly use the feature by joining via web browser.

Microsoft Teams will also support seeing up to 49 friends or family members in a gallery view or through its Together Mode feature that puts you side by side in a virtual environment.




With the Thanksgiving right across the corner, Microsoft takes this initiative for families to connect virtually and celebrate the festivities, as going out is not a option during this pandemic.

Teams might be a little late to the consumer party, but with a long 24-hour limit on meeting length and an easy to use web app, it suddenly looks like Microsoft is offering the best way (until it imposes limits) to connect with friends and family free of charge.




Zoom has a limit of 40 mins call like other competitive video call platforms, which is specially uplifted for the thanksgiving.

How To Begin To Use The Feature

To get started as a meeting host all you need to do is visit Microsoft’s new Teams web link and sign in with a Microsoft Account.

Once you’ve created a video meeting you can simply share the link with friends and family, and they’ll be able to join via the web free of charge without needing a Microsoft Account.
