Maximum number in a group



I am thinking about getting the business package with manager for group calls.  I have only seen mention of 7+ people in a group.  What is the maximum number of people allowed in a group?  I need to arrange a group call of 20 people.

Re: Maximum number in a group

Re: Maximum number in a group; screen share

Hi, nareng, and welcome to the Community,


Screen sharing is a video feed, so like video calls, you may share your screen with a total of nine (9) others at the same time, making the maximum number of people ten (10) including yourself.
