Raise Hands during online meetings - Zoho Meeting

Raise Hand

During a meeting, anyone can use the Raise Hand feature as a signal to get the attention of the speaker, or to answer impromptu questions or to indicate that you want to contribute without interrupting the conversation. Some use cases are listed below.
Possible use cases
  1. The Host can ask participants to 'raise hands' if:
  2. The presenter's voice is audible enough.
  3. They agree with something that the Host states.
  4. Their question has not been answered
  5. They need to speak in the meeting.

How it works
Everyone in the meeting will see on their screens that you've got your hand up. Anyone who has raised their hand will have a hand icon next to their name in the participants list as well.
