Chat, conference announcements, break rooms
People can direct-message each other in the Chat window, if they would like to start a private conversation with another participant or with a group of participants. These chats do not require channels to be created, allowing free-form interaction between participants.
A summary of the different channels on the Teams site is provided below.
Break Room 1,2,3
For conference participants to interact during the breaks. Participants can join meetings on these channels and can move between break room meetings. This can be a way to meet people spontaneously. There are three break rooms in total, with no set agenda. To interact privately with another participant or with a smaller group, participants can message or call each other directly on Teams.
