Today, we’re sharing the latest updates and new features for Breakout Room. 

One-click meetings and invites

You can now start a separate meeting room instantly within Breakout Room. Previously, you could only meet website visitors that requested a chat. Now, you can instantly create your own meeting room and meet with anyone.

Just click “Create Room.” Then, share the meeting room URL with anyone you’d like to join.

You can use Breakout Room to meet in so many ways:

  • Already using a website chat product? When you want to talk with a visitor or share your screen, just share an instant meeting room with them.
  • Use Breakout Room to meet with sales prospects. No software downloads means they’ll always be able to log into your meeting.
  • Need to quickly meet with a colleague in another office? Just send a Breakout Room.


Audio-only option

Want to speak with someone, but don’t want to share your webcam? Our new audio-only options lets you “phone into” a meeting without sharing your webcam. It’s the perfect option for those early-morning meetings while you’re still in your pajamas.
