Can a live breakout or webinar meeting timeout if nobody joins?

Live breakout sessions using our integrated video conferencing platform will auto time out if any of the following criteria are met:

  • No audio connections are present in the meeting for more than five minutes.
  • Only one audio connection is present in the meeting for more than 30 minutes.
  • 24 hours have elapsed since the meeting was started.

Remember: keep these criteria in mind when adding secondary breakout sessions to a primary live breakout session. You should have at least 2 people stay in the primary breakout session in order to prevent the session auto closing and causing the secondary breakout sessions to also end. Live breakout sessions will auto end if everyone leaves the meeting, regardless if breakout sessions are active within the primary live breakout session.
