Google Meet is now rolling out an update that will improve its hand-raising feature. After this update, users will be able to spot and acknowledge raised hands easily when a video call is going on. A better visual icon and animation will be shown on the video tile making it easier to spot.
Also, the hand-raised users will be moved to a better position so that they are better visible to the users during the session. This new feature is coming in an update which already Google has rolled out on June 16. However, the feature will reach the users in phases.
After the update, it will be something like this. When the first hand is raised, users will get an audio notification. Also, once the user has spoken, the app will lower the hand and place the tiles of the users with raised hands to a better visible position in the grid. A better icon and animation will be available. Along with this, when more than one user raises their hands, the app will queue them on a first-come, first-serve (FCFS) basis.
