Zoom: Managing Breakout Rooms in a Meeting


U-M Zoom


I would like to know how to create and manage a breakout room in Zoom


Note: Breakout rooms are only available in meetings and are not a feature for webinars in U-M Zoom

Breakout rooms allow you to split your Zoom meeting in up to 100 separate sessions. The meeting host or co-host can choose to split the participants of the meeting into these separate sessions automatically or manually, and can switch between sessions at any time.

  • Up to 100 breakout rooms can be created
  • Participant limit is equal to the number of participants in the meeting
  • Breakout room participants have full audio, video, and screen share capabilities (if "all participants" is enabled for screen sharing by the host)

Learn more about creating and managing breakout rooms in Zoom.
