Miro Mode brings the power of Miro’s visual collaboration tool into your Around by Miro Labs (Around) meetings to help your team co-create more effectively and stay engaged. Your team can now gather around a Miro board inside Around and collaborate seamlessly with instant access to new or existing boards.
Connect your Miro account
To create and access Miro boards within Around, you must first connect a new or existing Miro account. From the Lobby, click on your avatar in the top right corner and select
Your Account. Navigate to the
Account tab and click
Connect next to the Miro option under
Additional Sign-In Methods.
Add a Miro board to a room
Create a new Miro board
There are two primary ways to add a new Miro board to a room:
- For rooms where a Miro board has never been used, click on Miro Mode using the Miro button at the top center of the meet window. This will automatically create a new board.
- For rooms where another Miro board is already in use, click the down caret beside the Miro toggle in the top center of the meet window and select
New Blank Board.
Note: The last Miro board used in a room is immediately available the next time you join, so your team can easily pick up where they left off.
Open an existing Miro board
Open a Miro board you’ve used previously by clicking the down caret beside the Miro toggle in the top center of the meet window and selecting
Use a Miro board template
You also have access to Miro’s library of 300+ board templates with proven workflows to help your team collaborate more quickly and efficiently.
To create a Miro board using a template, start by clicking the down caret beside the Miro toggle in the top center of the meet window and selecting the category that best fits the purpose of the meeting and/or room (Brainstorm, Planning, Retro, or Workshop).
Once you’ve selected a category, you’ll be presented with a list of related Miro board templates. Choose the template that best fits your needs and a new board will be opened so your team can start collaborating.
Using Around meeting templates
Around’s meeting templates package several Around features into a seamless experience that supports specific meeting use cases (e.g. standups). These meeting templates are often centered around a Miro board template.
Miro-centric meeting templates are denoted with a yellow “Powered by Miro” badge
Miro board templates can also be added to a room to establish a default meeting experience. People entering Around rooms with the “Powered by Miro” badge always join in Miro Mode (instead of Campfire, Floating, etc) with all of their content exactly where they left off.
With a new room
To create a new room using a meeting template, navigate to the Around Lobby and click the
New room card under the corresponding Workspace. Next, choose a meet experience from the list of
Use cases / Rituals and a new room will immediately be created. To adjust the room’s settings (eg name, URL, permissions, etc), click the Edit button that appears at the bottom center of the Lobby or click the three dots on the top right of the room card and select
With an existing room
The default experience of an existing room can be changed in the room’s settings. From the Lobby, click the three dots on the top right of the corresponding room card and select
Edit Room. Use the
Room Type select to choose the desired experience and then save your changes.
Bring Everyone Here
Kick off a collaborative session by bringing all meeting participants to the Miro board you want everyone to focus on. This means everyone currently in the meeting will be immediately moved to Miro Mode. To use, click the down caret beside the Miro toggle in the top center of the meet window and select
Bring Everyone Here.
Pop-out to Browser
Seamlessly transition your work from Around to the browser by clicking the down caret beside the Miro toggle in the top center of the meet window and selecting
Pop-out to Browser.
Meeting attendees on a mobile device can view an active Miro board, but cannot create or edit boards or their content at this time.
How do I sign into a different Miro team?
- Sign out of Around by clicking your avatar in the top right corner of the Lobby and selecting

How do I capture a Miro board during a recording?
Miro Mode is not available with our recording playback at this time. However, you can capture Miro board activity in a recording by using Around’s Screen Sharing feature to share a Miro board and capture anything shared from that perspective.
I only have a free Miro account. Can I still invite people to collaborate on a Miro board in Around?
Yes, as long as they are added to your plan as a member. If a user tries to join your board as a guest or visitor, they will have the option to request to be added as a member.
Can mobile users view or edit Miro boards in meetings?
Meeting attendees on a mobile device can view an active Miro board but cannot create or edit boards at this time.
