Automatically move Breakout Room participants back to the original meeting

Yes, change

Google is rolling out some improvements to rooms in Google Meet. These improvements include:

  • The ability for meeting organizers and co-hosts to automatically move participants back to the main room after the meeting room ends.
  • Visual indicators are better for rest room participants to indicate this movement.

Why it’s important

In 2020, Google introduced Breakout Rooms for Google Meet, allowing meeting organizers and meeting co-hosts to break larger meetings into smaller groups for discussion or teamwork. And the feature has received feedback from its customers that they need more control to manage rooms easily and efficiently.

 

Automatically move Breakout Room participants back to the original meeting

Room participants will see a banner with a countdown indicating when they will be moved back to the main room.

Now Google has added better metrics that confirm participants have been moved back to the main boardroom. Additionally, the camera and microphone will be disabled when participants are automatically moved back to the main meeting – participants can re-enable the microphone when they are ready.
