The goal of Google, specifically for workspace users, is to improve people’s interaction. Now, through Google Calendar you can create Breakout Rooms in Google Meet in advance. It would be much easier than before to make your plans if you are someone who still relies on meeting at school, at work, and other things to organize your meetings by creating Breakout Rooms in Google Meet.

What are Breakout Rooms?
Table of Contents
The breakout rooms are the sessions isolated from the main conference window, just as at zoom conferences. According to the Google support page, moderators may use this function from Google Meet to divide participants into simpler partitions during the meeting.
The moderators should be informed on the computer during the meeting to enable the rooms. As this is designed for various purposes during the discussion, they cannot be filmed or even streamed for a live session.
On the same page, everyone could be a moderator at the meeting, but only one would be available per meeting. If a person has already arranged a Google Calendar meeting with another person, he/she may be substituted by another person.
Breakout rooms are typically used in educational applications. They are used by teachers and other related professionals to prepare their learning content. This is also useful to them because it stops the Breakout Rooms from being wasted time during the video call.
