Microsoft Teams to Support Chats with Distribution Lists and Other Groups

Microsoft Teams is getting a new update that will enable users to start a group chat by inviting members of distribution lists, Microsoft 365 groups, or mail-enabled security groups. The feature will respect the limit for a group chat membership, which is currently set to 250 people.

Microsoft Teams lets users create tags to ping a specific group of people within a group chat, but tag management can be challenging in particular scenarios. The upcoming update will let users choose a distribution list to broadcast information and send notifications within Teams. This should make it easier to organize chats based on a particular discussion subject, such as marketing, sales, and support.
