Join a breakout room

  • By default, you'll be moved into your assigned breakout room as soon as your instructor opens the room. No action is required on your part.

  • If your instructor has turned off the automatic setting, you'll receive a notification to join the breakout room when it opens. Select Join Room on desktop or Join on mobile to enter the room.

  • If you're joining from your mobile device, do not leave the meeting while your instructor is setting up rooms.

  • You'll also receive notifications to rejoin the main meeting or if you are moved into another room.

  • If you switch devices during the meeting or join with two devices, you'll still remain in the same breakout room.

Chat in a breakout room

Each breakout room will have its own chat. You'll be able to access it from your chats list and from Chat in the breakout room.

  • You will be added to a breakout room chat when your instructor starts the room. You'll be removed from the chat when the room is closed.

  • Chat history and any files shared can still be accessed after the breakout room is closed, as well as meeting recordings.
