    Hi I wanted to use the breakout feature for my associate degree project, but unfortunately it's not yet programatically available. As a big fan of the feature I for this project, I know it's going to come in the rest api (no eta yet) and hope we can do a lot of preprep just like in the webpage.

    Where meetings need parallel and breakout sessions this is a really valuable enhancement and seems to work well so thank you for delivering. Just need it in WebEx Events now!

    Since the admin responded that this feature has been delivered, where can we read instructions on how to use breakout sessions?

    Absolutely & more functional control by the host or admin person to call people back or get people back to the main room vs. individuals having to click on a button to get back into the main room. Needs to be more user friendly in order to help sessions run smoother --like ZOOM break out sessions.

    YES!, when can we have this feature in Webex Meeting? Training Center is really outdated!

    Can you elaborate?

    Yes please add this to Meeting Center. Training center is not intuitive.

    This functionality is essential for university-level teaching.

    Agreed, we need this. It is essential for board meetings, confidential sessions, workshops etc

    Most definitely! This would make this platform much more competitive.

    YES THIS IS NEEDED. And video in those breakout rooms! It's time to dump the WebEx Training product (since you never seem to do updates to it) and put all of those features into WebEx Meetings.

    꼭필요한 기능입니다. 임 Zoom에는 있는 기능으로 보완이 없다면 뒤쳐질것입니다.

    Absolutely necessary, as your competitor already does this.

    Absolutely needed. We having a couple of platforms being trialled, and the lack of breakout rooms in WebEx Meetings is a point of difference raised by those arguing to go a different way.

    This feature is so much needed.

    Even the break out room function in Webex Trainings is not at all able to compete with Zoom. It only allows audio connection. But please, wouldn't you say that this is why people got to love Zoom during the last months?

    This is why Zoom flourished during the pandemic, and Webex Meetings became an afterthought ......

    I'm stuck with Webex because it's my company's telepresence tool. But it's the one thing everyone loves to hate.

    It's disappointing to see the feature parity between Zoom and Webex slide by SUCH a huge margin.

    With so many product coming out with every features set on a daily basis, I am not sure why in case of WebEx : why the best feature set which exist in all the 3 major module ( WebEx Meeting, Event, Training) can be made common for all the 3. Leave it on the WebEx admin to have it enabled to specific requirement. Breakout room is of utmost importance and should be common for all the 3 flavor of WebEx. Much appreciated if this can be enabled on a priority
