Google Meet is getting breakout rooms, but only for educational purpose

Featured, Google Meet

Google Meet video conferencing service is now adding some new features to Google Meet. They are adding breakout rooms, but available only for educational purposes.

With this new feature, educators will be able to break their classes into smaller groups for group discussions, or projects. Google will let you make 100 breakout rooms in a single call. Google will randomly add people to those groups. Moderator also had an option to manually add people in a group. Moderators can get into groups to check the work.

The feature will be coming to other G Suite and Google Workspace editions later this year. Google video conferencing rival Zoom already offers breakout feature, for all of its users. In Zoom you can split up to 50 different groups, but Google offers up to 100 different groups in a single call.
