Tech Tip: Teams Breakout Rooms are here

Microsoft Teams offers users the option to use a Breakout Room. Meeting organizers can use Breakout Rooms to break meeting attendees into small groups during you meeting.  

Breakout Rooms rolled out the week of Dec. 7. Meeting organizers should now see the icon in their meetings.  

Only meeting organizers can create and manage Breakout Rooms. Anyone in a Teams meeting can participate in a Breakout Room though.  

To use Breakout Rooms, as a meeting organizer, select the Breakout Rooms icon (a square within a square). Follow the instructions that pop-up in the next screen.  

To learn more about Breakout Rooms, read this short article from Microsoft. For questions, submit a ticket to the KCIT HelpDesk
