Host Leaving when Breakout rooms in progress


I've to search and there is no clue about what happens if the host leaves the meeting when breakout rooms are still in progress?

I'm the host and sometimes I just need to shut down my desktop in the middle of breakout rooms meeting.
what is the impact of the running meeting?

@PevitaSTIES If you just "go away" and don't end the meeting, another participant will become host automatically and the breakout rooms will stay open.  If you have an alternative host or co-host, one of them would be assigned the host role.  If you do not, one of the other participants would be promoted to host unless you indicate they should go into the waiting room.  


If you leave gracefully, then you can select who will be the replacement host when you leave.
