Understanding meeting participant limit

Last Updated:

The maximum number of participants in your meeting depends on your Zoom plan/account type and user type.

This article covers

Account types and participant limit

By default, these are the meeting participant limit per account type:

  • Basic (free or free with credit card): 100 participants
  • Pro: 100 participants
  • Business: 300 participants
  • Enterprise: 500 participants
  • (Optional) Add-ons: 500 participants ; 1,000 Participants


  • A basic user within a Business plan or above inherits the account's default meeting capacity, such as a Business account's default meeting capacity of 300.
  • The meeting participant limit can be increased by purchasing a license (for free/basic accounts), upgrading the current plan, or purchasing a large meeting add-on.
  • Meeting capacity from multiple large meeting add-ons cannot be combined.
  • If end-to-end encryption is enabled for a meeting, participants are limited to 200 regardless of the account's default capacity and large meeting add-on.
  • Once a meeting reach capacity, joining participants will get a dialog box stating the meeting has reached the maximum number of allowed participants and joining is only possible if some participants leave.
