Zoom in and raise your hand
Zoom recently released a “raise hand” feature for its desktop client and mobile applications. The following is how you can use this feature when attending a meeting or course.
On the desktop
If you are attending an online meeting on a PC, the raise hand function is very easy to use. Please follow the steps below to perform this operation on the desktop Zoom client:
1. In the online meeting, click the “Response” option at the bottom of the screen.
2. Then click the “Raise Hand” option in the pop-up window to raise your hand.
After asking the question, you can select the “Response” button again to let go, and then you will see the “Start” option there.
If you want to know why there is an option to start, it is because when you use the “raise hand” feature, all participants will have a raised hand emoji in the upper left corner of the video source, and they know that you have raised your hand.
On Android and iOS
In the Zoom mobile app for iOS or Android, the bottom menu bar is hidden to provide a full-screen view during the meeting. Therefore, you need to tap the phone’s display to open the options. After that, please follow the steps below:
1. During a Zoom call, tap the screen to open the options at the bottom.
2. Then, click the three horizontal dots (more) icon.
3. In the pop-up window, select the “Raise Hand” option.
That’s it! Just like on a PC, you also need to let go. Therefore, select the three horizontal dot icons again, and then click “Lower Hand”.
Reward: Give other reactions
In addition to raising your hand, you can also make other reactions during the meeting. These reactions include applause, heartbeat, etc.
To give any of these reactions, just follow the same steps as above. On the PC, click “Reaction” and select any given emoji. That’s it! Other people in the meeting can see this reaction.
So from now on, if someone says something worthy of praise, don’t forget to applaud silently.
