Raise hand

Rolling out this month, this feature will let meeting participants indicate they have something to say during a meeting by clicking a hand-raise icon on the meeting options toolbar.

Rolling out this month, this feature will allow meeting Organizers to download a participant report – from the participant list – that includes join and leave times for all participants.

1Note: When adding a personal background, consider your choice of image carefully and make sure it is appropriate for the type of meeting you are hosting or participating in. You do not want your image to cause offence for any of the meeting participants.
