Here’s a roundup of several new features that Zoom has added over the last several months.

  • Allow participants to choose which breakout room they join:
    • video demo from Ben Finio
    • instructions and screenshots from Pathable
    • NOTE: participants (and the host) must have a fairly new version of Zoom installed in order to self-select breakout rooms. If you’re going to use this feature, it’s recommended to tell all students to update their Zoom app. If a participant does not have a new enough version, the instructor can simply put them in the desired room manually.
