In the meeting controls, click on the Breakout Rooms button. A message can be broadcast by selecting the Broadcast option on the right side of the screen. The message can then be entered and you will be able to select “Share this message with all members”. All participants in Breakout Rooms will now see the message as soon as they enter the room. You may have the option to choose the breakout rooms for your attendees based on the number of those who are expected to attend the meeting, if you are the meeting’s host on the day of the meeting.
 
There are several Zoom breakout rooms that can be accessed by everyone who has a Zoom account, so only those who log into their accounts and enable that function will be able to take part in these sessions for free, even if they do not have a Zoom account yet. There is only one catch here, and that is that you have to enable this setting in order to be able to create a breakout room on Zoom before you can actually create one.
