I can hear Users voice in a break-ot room and in another room

New Contributor

In my last meeting I created a break-out session additionally to a meeting. I wondered because I could hear a user voices in both rooms. How is that possible? Does anyone know? Thanks

@lernglust Hello, full "breakout room" functionality isn't rolled out yet so I assume you're using the new multi-window feature.


As for the breakout rooms you can follow the progress from the Teams Road map.. here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=65332


..and the associated UserVoice request here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35000044-introduce-breakout-ro...

Thank you for your reply. Neither Iam using breakout rooms nor multiwindows funcionality. I set up a meeting and I copied a link to a separate meeting in the chat. So, the User (in this case an attendee) can change the room. As a result I get a 'faked breakout room' (because the original meeting gets onhold) The problem is, when the attendee enter the other meeting, I still can hear him/her in the original meeting room. Is there an explanation why his voice does not change the room?
If I had to guess the other user is joining the other meeting link via browser which will allow you to join two meetings one via client and one via web.

@Chris Webbyou can start up to 4 meetings in the same time within the client. If you do so, it can happen, that the voice of an attendee is heared twicely.

I've never seen this, cause you go on hold, but if you can reproduce this I would highly recommend contacting support since that is a pretty major but IMO.
I have the same problem. Twice already. I use Teams app on a windows laptop. What is the solution?
