In January 2022, Zoom offered some new features including direct control of Breakout Rooms. The Prime Panel now has a new look with a while login page.

Breakout Room control on the far-right once you join the meeting.

While you can join a meeting with pre-created Breakout Rooms, you can build the rooms right in the classroom.

Create and open rooms along with a detailed Settings menu.

The Prime panel can join all Breakout rooms.
