Breakout Rooms?

There is an issue reported on the bug tracker requesting the breakout rooms feature, progress can be followed there.

@mgrant I see a lot of interesting feedback from you here. Perhaps you’d like to contribute it on the existing bug report about it.

Doesn’t seem to me there will be much progress. It’s pretty clear that this feature is not on the roadmap. That said, a Jitsi team member described how it might be done by a developer using the External API.

Just to let you know that we have deployed this feature inside Veertly, if you want to have a look and provide feedback would be really appreciated: https://app.veertly.com

I tried creating a test event but couldn’t figure out how to do it, I was caught in endless registrations and forms :frowning: Perhaps consider simplifying the workflow.

You are right, this login process still needs to be improved.
You can try the demo to have a look and ping me o telegram @joaoaguiam to help you with the creation of an event.

Also a duplicate of this topic at https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/issues/4787#issuecomment-626213513 . It seems there is already one that wrote it and want to make it open source after code cleanup.

I created https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wiki/Jitsi-based-solutions-for-breakout-rooms to list and compare all known Jitsi-based solutions for breakout rooms. Unfortunately since then, edit access has been removed so presumably most people can no longer update it. I will complain about this elsewhere and try to get it fixed.

great job @joaoaguiam! This looks like it will be a great product for future events.

See Edit access for jitsi/jitsi-meet wiki was removed

I had the hardest time finding this again, so I’m guessing others may not have seen it.


I realize this is more of a front end implementation, but a combination of this and having multiple “fish bowls” and perhaps a separate room for each bowl still visible for everyone might be a good solution. It’s definitely unique.

Unhangout http://unhangout.media.mit.edu uses jitsi and is based around breakout rooms (though there’s no central room so to speak)

Thanks @josephbrundige, if you want to know more and what is coming in the future just let me know on t.me/joaoaguiam

The platform we’ve build around Jitsi is specifically focussed on breakout rooms and the facilitation aspects of this.

The work the Jitsi team is doing is awesome and really great at providing the basis to do this type of stuff but if you don’t want to have to setup all the platform infrastructure yourself, we provide the is a public facing saas product.

As the wiki page mentioned (https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wiki/Jitsi-based-solutions-for-breakout-rooms) we don’t currently have good mobile access and are just using the Jitsi mobile app, but will soon release custom iOS and android apps to solve this in the next month.

Thought I would add a small reply here that we now have both IOs and Android apps based of the Jitsi core mobile build.

That’s great. Please could you update the wiki page accordingly?

I don’t think it’s possible to edit the wiki still sorry. At least I’m not able to find a way.

Looks nice!

The wiki page has now been moved into the official handbook, so anyone can submit PRs to the breakout-rooms.md file.

Any possibility to bring that feature to the community ?
