How about the free version? Is it 4 hours for hosting the meeting?

For limited time, it's 24 hours with 300 participants for Teams Free. (Normally it's 60 minutes meeting with max 100 participants for free)

Hi @MichielDekkers-0449,

The Microsoft Teams live events still have a maximum period of 16 hours, you'll find all the Microsoft Teams limitations over here:

Does the 16 hour duration time limit start when the Producer enters the event, or when the event is first Sent Live?

It begins with Send Live.

@MichielDekkers-0449,

The maximum duration of event scheduled in Oct 12th is 16 hours.

The latest official document said that Microsoft will temporarily raise default limits until January 1, 2021. After January 1, 2021, customers who need these limit increases will be required to purchase the Advanced Communications add-on.

For more details, please refer to this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#teams-live-events.
