There are three types of rooms in SpatialChat:
You can identify them by a special mark to the left of the room name. Let's review each one step by step and make clear all differences between all types of rooms.
Breakout room is the most common-used room in the SpatialChat. It works like a real office or any working space. Once you are in the Breakout room, you can hear a discussion group by dragging your avatar closer to any group of people. If you want to be near a specific person, you can either click their avatar in the space, or you can click their names that are listed on the right panel of the screen.
Each of our Breakout rooms can have no more than 50 participants. This is a technical limitation and cannot be changed in any way. Despite that, you can talk to each other in the Breakout room, share your screen, add any content you want if there are no room permissions set by the Space admin.
Moreover, there are many options in the Breakout room, which could also be found in this article.
If you need to accumulate more than 50 people in a room, you can use the Stage room in this case. According to the plan, 3000 people can join the Stage room simultaneously, and up to 6 speakers can go on the Stage.
The idea of the Stage room is that an administrator or host can speak to a large audience in one room. In comparison with a Breakout room, only a certain number of people can speak or share any content. Other guests are in listen-only mode and can use only a room chat.

The Audio room is a huge conversation area with up to 3000 people, which everyone can join. As it's called the Audio room, there is no video or screen share option, you can only talk with other people without any additional features like in the Breakout or the Stage rooms.
If you are not an administrator or host, you need to raise a hand, and then an administrator or host allows you to join the conversation area. Up to 17 people can discuss and talk in the audio room conversation area at one time.
