Hi,

I've seen an announcement today that Microsoft are updating Microsoft Teams for education with the ability to create breakout rooms.

Does anyone know when this feature is going to be released for Microsoft Teams business Users?

Thanks

    Hi WorganNick-3205!

    Sorry, as TKujala said, this feature seems still in development and we did not find any detailed release time from Microsoft.

    Based on my research, if you are an Owner/Member of a Team are able to create Channels, you can try to follow this link guidance to create a Breakout Room in Teams:
