Teams Raise your Hand

Teams Raise Your Hand

In this bitesize Teams Tips and Tricks post we look at the relatively new Hands Up! Feature in Microsoft Teams, in which any user can Raise their Hand during a Teams Meeting.

In May 2020 Microsoft released the much anticipated Teams Raise your Hand Feature which allows individual people to grab everyone's attention during a group call or meeting and let them know they have something to add. This feature is only available in group calls and not 1 to 1 calls, which makes sense.

Raising your Hand

While in a meeting, if you have a comment or question but don't want to interrupt the speaker select the Raise your hand icon in your control bar; you can't miss it, it's the hand. This will place a gold hand icon on your video feed to let the rest of the attendees know that you'd like to speak.
