Zoom breakout rooms update - New features

Zoom has added some great new features to their breakout rooms. Please note that these features do require the most recent version of the Zoom client, version 5.10.0.
You can now:

Save Breakout Room assignments for future use

When breakout rooms are created, the host can save that current configuration and participant assignments, which can be used in future sessions. This is only available for recurring meetings and is limited to 10 saved configurations per user.

Share audio with content to all breakout rooms

Hosts are able to share computer audio, along with shared content, to all breakout rooms. This can be enabled when beginning the share, or while sharing is in progress. This also supports the Share Video option as well for Breakout Rooms.

Optional include co-host when automatically assigning breakout rooms

When creating breakout rooms and choosing to assign participants automatically, any co-hosts will now not automatically be included in the assignments, but the host can choose to include them.
