Google Meet Hand Raise Feature. Google has recently announced that a bunch of interesting new updated would-be hitting Google meets Hand raise features, which is the effect that happens to appear when one of the people on the video chat is looking for the attention of someone.
Google Meet Hand Raise Feature
Google Stated that the changes have been designed to make things a lot easier for all those that want to participate to see when someone raises their hands. This can be acquired via adding an audio notification, visual animation, changes to the video grid, and many more.
Google Meet Updates
Google meet happens to be the rival to products like Zoom. Users that are taking part in a group video chat, which includes an online class or friend group, get to catch the other participants’ attention without being rude by having to raise their hand in the software. A video notification tends to make the intention very clear, but that would assume other users would get their attention drawn to it.
Google states in their workspace blog that users of the Google Meet users would notice an updated visual hand raise icon that further features animation on the user’s video tile; it pops up in the bottom left corner along with the name of the user.
How Google Meet Hand Raise Feature Works
The software would display a notification, when you click on it, it would show who raised their hands and the order in which the users have their hands raised. As well, automatically, the software would lower the hands of the users once they began talking.
As well, Google stated that their software might just take the video tiles for people that have their hands raised so that they would become more visible just within the overall group video grid. As well, the users are expected to hear audio notifications for the very first time that someone decides to raise their hand.
The feature rolled out yesterday but might just take up a couple of weeks before its arrival to everybody using Google Meet. These changes would be available by default.
