Hands Up in Teams Meetings

Need to be noticed in a Teams meeting? You can now raise your hand (virtually) to attract the attention of meeting participants. No one might notice, but at least you’ve tried. To some, this might be a small feature. To others, like teachers facing large classes, it might be a real boon.

Do I need to do something to see get the "hands up" option?  This is still not an option for me.

Just wait for the software update to reach your tenant...

We present large trainings using powerpoint, and would like to break off into smaller interactive virtual work groups during the training; is that possible in Teams?

The break out room feature is under development currently

Hello, Teams Hands up option is not appearing in our education profile on a PC, Mac or iPad OS.

Our teachers are asking to use Zoom because of this feature not appearing in Teams.

When will it be available?

@Tony Redmond How long will it take for the hands up software to reach our tenant?

Is there an estimate on when the break out room feature will be ready?

@seweather  Given that a) I don't work for Microsoft and b) have precisely zero visibility into the deployment of the necessary bits to your tenant and c) no ability to force the bits to arrive: I don't know.

Understand, I apologize, I thought you were one of the specialist.

Thanks for your reply. I thought l was contacting a Microsoft Technician via the tech community.

KEEP WASHING HANDS and KEEP WELL.
