A new feature named Raise Hands has been rolled out in Google Meet. Through this feature, users will be able to raise their hands virtually to indicate the questioning in the meeting. Raise Hand button has been released for this feature. This button will appear down on the screen during the meeting. If more than one user can use this feature in a meeting, then the meeting moderator will be able to see the hands that are raised in a virtual order and the questions can be answered accordingly.
Pressing on the Raise Hand button during the conference at Google Meet will change it to a lower hand button. Google has explained this clearly in a blog post. There will also be an option to lower the hands of a selected user or down all hands of the moderating meeting. If the moderator turns your hand down, you will get a notification.

All the participants will get a notification when a user raises the hand and the user will also have a self-view icon. This feature is available for Android, iOS and web users. Google has started rolling out the feature and it may take some time to reach all the users. This feature is already available with the video conferencing app Zoom that competes Google Meet.
In Google Meet, when a participant raises their hand up vertically, the meeting moderator will see the hand icon in the video views. If the moderator is in another tab and the Google Meat tab is not open, then they will get a sound notification when they click on a participant’s Raise Hand button.
