Announcing 24 Hour Participant Durations For Video Rooms GA

We are excited to announce the availability of 24 hour participant durations for video rooms. 

You can now configure the Maximum Participant Duration for any Twilio Video room type. This value is set at the time of room creation, and upon reaching the limit, a participant will be disconnected from the room. 

The default value for maximum participant duration is 4 hours. You can change this value either through the Console under Rooms Settings to make it the default for Ad-hoc rooms or as a configurable parameter via the REST API upon room creation.

For more information on configuring the maximum participant duration, view the participant duration documentation. If you are composing room recordings of participants with long durations, you may want to review the composition size limitations.
