Breakout sessions are available on WBS40.9 and later sites. To find out which version of Webex Meetings that you're using, see Find Your Cisco Webex Meetings Version Number.

The number of participants in a breakout session is limited by the meeting capacity of your plan. For example, for plans that allow 1,000 people, you can have up to 100 breakout sessions with up to 100 people in each, 20 sessions with 50 people in each, and so on.

Participants who aren't assigned to breakout sessions remain in the main meeting when the breakout sessions start.
