Raise your hand option in Teams meetings
During a Microsoft Teams meeting, a participant can use the Raise your hand option to get the speaker's and moderator's attention.
This feature is important for the following reasons:
Participants can signal that they want to talk without disrupting the meeting.
The moderator or speaker can see if anyone in the meeting wants to talk.
Raise your hand makes meetings more inclusive by encouraging participation from participants.
Raise your hand provides a simple, quick way to take a poll of meeting participants.
A Teams admin doesn't have to create a policy for the feature to appear in a meeting.
Raise your hand display
Raise your hand is always available in any meeting you join and is supported on all clients except meeting room devices (at the moment).
A raised hand is visible to all meeting participants and indicated by a hand icon.
Raised hands are shown in the meeting stage, roster (sorted by duration), and when sharing content.
The raised hand is displayed as yellow adjacent to a participant's name.
Once participants has been acknowledged, they can use the Lower your hand option. Meeting presenters can also lower a participant's hand.
