Upcoming Breakout Rooms in Microsoft Teams: information so far

This week we have seen some info about upcoming Breakout Rooms functionality to Microsoft Teams in Twitter and in LinkedIn by Microsoft employees.

Jeff Teper tweeted “Working on it… ” with a picture snipped about how Breakout Rooms look in Teams

And the Rish Tandon followed up with information that “up to 50 them, with auto assignment”.


It seems that there will more information about these rooms soon:

In the roadmap these are still scheduled / estimated for Q4/2020, which means rollout could starting between October – December.

People are awaiting this feature with anticipation. This is very much needed in education sector but also in enterprises, trainings and events.

Meanwhile the only option is to create these manually in Teams: either as separate meetings or using channels in a team.
