Google Meet has added a new feature that will allow participants to raise hands while conducting virtual meetings.
This whole new Zoom like feature of Google Meet will offer the ability to raise hands virtually to speak in the meeting. Users have to click on the “Raise Hand” button located at the bottom bar to raise a hand in the Google Meet. After pressing the button it will replace into “Lower hand” button and you can click on it to lower your raised hand.
This is one of the most useful features of Google Mert and with this ability now participants can ask their queries and also answer by raising their hands during virtual meetings. In large meetings, this helps to increase participation while not disrupting the flow of the conversation and helps to prevent people from interrupting one another,” Google stated in a blog.
So on the off chance that you need to pose inquiries in a gathering or state something, you can utilize the Raise Hand Button to make yourself understood. It is smarter to advise the mediator prior to proclaiming something in a jiffy or intrude on the speaker. At the point when the button is clicked, the arbitrators become more acquainted with it. Whenever you are finished talking, you can tap on the same button to lower your hand.
“When a participant raises their hand, the meeting’s moderator will see a hand icon in their video preview. If the moderator is presenting in another tab, they’ll get a sound notification when someone raises their hand. The moderator will also be able to see all raised hands in the order they were raised in the meeting participant list panel to help them address questions accordingly. The moderator can lower a specific person’s hand or lower all hands,” Google said in a blog.
Admins can’t control the “Raise hand” feature as it will be switched on by default. The feature will be available after 15 days to Workspace Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus well as G Suite Business, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Nonprofits customers. Users having personal Google accounts and G Suite Basic customers will not enjoy this new feature of Google Meet.
