Set up Google Meet breakout rooms ahead of meetings in Google Calendar

Quick launch summary

You can now set up Google Meet breakout rooms in advance on Google Calendar. This makes it easier for teachers and meeting facilitators to prepare for differentiated learning, be thoughtful about group dynamics and avoid losing valuable time setting up breakout rooms during the call.

We previously announced this feature at Learning with Google, and it is now rolling out to customers.
