Breakout Rooms Icon Missing

Copper Contributor


I have installed Teams on two PC's (running the app, not the browser version).

All the documentation I have read indicates that I should be able to set up Breakout Rooms although the icon on the top bar is missing (see screenshot) on both PC's.

I am running using Office 365 Personal.

What am I missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, @Ian_UK5 - unfortunately breakout rooms aren’t available for the personal/free version of Teams.


You’ll need to upgrade to a license that it’s included in.

Hi @HelloBenTeoh 

Thanks for getting back to me :)

I've got a 365 Personal subscription which entitles me to 30 hours meetings + other paid for Teams functions etc (not the free account max. 1 hour meetings).

If I haven't got the right version / licence of Teams can you suggest which version I should have?

Many thanks


@Ian_UK5 have a look at the options here:


The licensing is a bit funny with which features are included at the different price points so have a look through.


You’ll notice that the “Business” level, pricing is for a broader suite of Microsoft 365 applications, not just Teams.
