Webinar features are coming to Microsoft Teams. No separate subscription, E3 or Business premium or higher. Setting up a webinar is just like scheduling a meeting. The feature should start rolling out to tenants this month.
Webinars will support up to 1,000 interactive attendees, with an “overflow” experience to a 10,000-person view-only broadcast experience.
Microsoft talks about “meetings”, “virtual events” and “webinars”. The distinction here is virtual events are using tech like NDI and mixing in complex AV.
Webinars can be organised just like scheduling a meeting
