I can't assign few participants in breakout rooms? Any suggestion!

Occasional Contributor

During online Teams meetings, I can't put or assing a few participants in breakout rooms. 

Some of them even can't use the chat function :/(they logged in with the organization email ID).

I tried my best to sort this out but it is out of my reach. So any suggestion in this regard is highly appreciated! 

Thanks,

Chemey

Hi, Teams breakout rooms is not GA yet.  It is now expected in November.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

1. Participants need to use a laptop/desktop computer to log in to the meeting. Meaning if participants log in with a phone or iPad organizer cannot assign participants to breakout rooms.  

2. Participants who are using MacBook should use Teams web-based (google chrome), not Teams application. 

I hope this helps! 

@PeterRising  Thanks but I found the solution!

@Chemey23 In my opinion is this not a specific Macbook problem. 

It is related to guest (external)  members of the meeting.

Also on a W10 device it is not possible using BO rooms in the client app. Only Webbased or as an logged in user.
