How to see all attendees on Teams
I’m sure you’ve wondered why you can’t see all the attendees on Teams conference calls. Unfortunately, Teams has limitations and that is by accessing both the web and the desktop app to collective video calls you can only view a certain number of participants, which you can view from Manage team> members.
By logging in with the desktop app you can see up to 9 participants at the same time, the most active ones or those you can block at the top. Basically, you will see what is talking and the last who have spoken.
While from the web version you can only see one at a time.
The events can still support up to 20 thousand participants. 50 events can take place simultaneously in the same tenant. The duration of the event is increased to 16 hours for each broadcast.
For the web version, if you want to see the grid of all the participants, you can install the Teams Carousel extension for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. To try it on the browsers indicated you can download it below:
