Breakout Rooms Numbers


Hello community! 

I understand that there are limitations to breakout rooms in that if you want to have 50 breakout rooms you can only have 200 participants in those rooms, and if you want to have 30 rooms you can have 400 participants. My questions is how many max can you fit in 40 rooms?  Is it a sliding scale or is it that if you have 31 rooms you can only have 200 participants? 


Hope this makes sense!

Hi @ComfortablyFun 


It is not a sliding-scale - there are three basic levels.


Number of breakout roomsMaximum number of participants who can be assigned to breakout rooms*
20 breakout roomsUp to 500 participants
30 breakout roomsUp to 400 participants
50 breakout roomsUp to 200 participants



The maximum capacities listed require a Large Meeting add-on. If you do not have a Large Meeting add-on, the maximum number of participants is limited by your meeting capacity. 


Only up to 200 participants can be pre-assigned to breakout rooms.


NoteZoom Support can increase the maximum capacity of your account's Breakout Rooms to allow up to 100 breakout rooms, with a maximum capacity of 1000 per breakout room (depending on account limits). This requires ALL participants to be on Zoom client version 5.2 or higher - anyone joining a meeting on your account who does not have Zoom client version 5.2 or higher will be required to update to join the meeting.



Thanks Rupert, this is helpful.  So which account would we need to have up to 100 breakout rooms? and is there any way to link accounts so that we can double our capacity?
