    the Lobby settings are not related to join time.
    In the Teams Admin Center you can choose Lobby Default Settings or you can choose the specific meeting settings from Teams, but these settings do not change after 5 minutes, it's set for the overall duration of the meeting

    Hi MeeraYadave-5278,

    The feature waiting in the lobby cannot apply to everyone.
    You can modify the related settings in Microsoft Teams admin center > Meetings > Meeting policies > Participants & guests.

    For more details about how to configure, you can refer to this link:
