SummaryHosts may want to break out a meeting into several rooms so that Participants can discuss by group. Breakout Rooms are deal for dividing meetings participants to smaller groups for discussion, activities or training. A Host can break out a meeting into up to 50 sub-meeting sessions. After the Host opens a Breakout Room, Participants in that breakout room will enter a new meeting session. Host can also move Participants back to the original main session.
