To further improve the experience in breakout rooms, Google is also adding three new features. Participants can now seek help when they're in a breakout room. When someone asks for help, the moderator will be able to view the request from the moderator panel and join the breakout room. Additionally, moderators will now be able to set a timer for a breakout session. Participants in the breakout room will be alerted 30 seconds before the time is up and will then be prompted to go back to the main call.
