Organizers will now be able to share control by assigning the new "Co-organizer" role to people they invite. Co-organizers will have almost all of the capabilities of the organizer, including management of Meeting Options.
Meeting organizers can assign the co-organizer meeting role to up to 10 people they invite to a meeting. Co-organizers will be granted most of the capabilities of the organizer in the meeting, including being able to access & modify the meeting options for the meeting.
100% in public preview
Meeting organizers can manage the co-organizer meeting role via a new "Choose co-organizers" meeting option:
To qualify for the co-organizer role, an invitee must be using an account that is on the same tenant, or using a Guest account on the same tenant as the organizer’s account.
Co-organizers will be displayed as additional organizers in the meeting's participants list, and they will have most of the capabilities of an organizer in the meeting.
Co-organizers can do the following:
Co-organizers cannot do the following:
Are there any other changes associated with this new feature?
The “Only me” selection for the “Who can present?” meeting option has been updated to reflect that this will apply to “Only me and co-organizers”. And the “Only me” selection for the “Who can bypass the lobby?” meeting option has been updated to reflect that this will apply to “Only me and co-organizers.”
Note: If you need information about enabling the public preview itself, see “Enable the public preview for Teams” below.
1. Co-organizers cannot yet access or download attendance reports.
2. While co-organizers can view meeting recordings, they do not yet have full parity with the organizer's recording management capabilities.
3. Only the meeting organizer can create breakout rooms before a meeting via the “Breakout Rooms” tab at the top of the meeting details page in Teams Calendar.

I am not able to see the "Choose co-organisers" option in Meeting options in the test account I enabled for Teams public preview on Teams desktop v1.5.00.3866. I have try quitting the Teams client and turn off and turn on Teams Public Preview but still don't have the co-organiser option.

Currently, the co-organizer feature doesn't support breakout rooms. Here is a temporary workaround for adding your Co-Organzier as a Breakout Room Manager, until it's fully supported:
BEFORE A MEETING
Organizer creates meeting
Organizer opens the meeting on their Teams calendar & adds Breakout Rooms (BR) to it
BRs shows up as a new tab along with other apps added to the meeting
Organizer then uses BR app's settings to assign a person invited to the meeting as a BR manager
Organizer opens meeting options and assigns meeting co-organizer role to that same person
Imagine that organizer is out of office that day (like in a substitute teacher scenario)
The co-organizer joins the meeting & they have all the capabilities of co-organizer role
The co-organizer starts the BR in the meeting
When co-organizer joins the BR, they no longer have the co-organizer role but since that person was assigned as a BR manager, they can manage the BR with all capabilities of a BR manager (their role essentially changed from "co-organizer" to "BR manager")
Once BR session is over, BR manager & other attendees will leave the BR and rejoin the main meeting
When they rejoin the main meeting, everyone is automatically assigned their original meeting roles for the main meeting
So, the original co-organizer who filled the BR manager role during the breakout room session automatically becomes a co-organizer in the main meeting once again

It would be better if the co-organizer had all the same permissions as the organizer. It is difficult when someone leaves the organization or takes over an event and then we are not able to have all of the same functions as the original organizer. Sometimes we need to cancel the original invite and re-send/get everyone to re-register all over again.
We use the MS Team Registration function to send our larger events to our customers and have them register through it but then only the original organizer can download registration information, change the meeting details, etc. We need to be able to re-assign the organizer or always have co-organizers for events.

@ConnorUhrig , thanks for the letting us know. Are you looking in the Meeting Options page, and are you making sure this is covered?
" an invitee must be using an account that is on the same tenant, or using a Guest account on the same tenant as the organizer’s account."

We're not seeing the Co-organizer option either despite jumping through all the hoops. Specifically (using the latest Edge browser), we have:
When the meeting organizer then clicks "Meeting options," there is no Co-organizer option available.
What are we doing wrong?

As others before me have mentioned, the co-organizer field is not visible in the meeting options.
And I agree, a co-organizer should be able to see the Attendance tab in the Teams Webinar invite and should be able to download the registration report and the attendance report.
Because currently I have a problem: I'm going on holiday soon, during which Webinars I organized will take place and no-one else can see the registration info.
