Google Meet’s hand-raising function is getting a more noticeable animation


Google Meet, Google’s response to video calling services like Zoom, is getting a collection of valuable tweaks to its hand-raising function as part of continuous updates to Workspace. The brand-new modifications, found by 9to5Google, consist of a brand-new hand-raising animation, notice noise, and changes to how hosts are warned of raised hands.

While the upgrade is small, for anybody who utilizes Google Meet in a big group setting or frequently participates in webinars, the tweaks will be handy– plus, the brand-new animation actually is good.

  • An upgraded and enhanced visual icon and animation on the video tile
  • The tiles of individuals with raised hands might be relocated to be more noticeable in the video grid
  • An audio alert for all individuals when the very first raised hand is raised
  • A clickable notice which reveals the variety of raised hands and which links to a purchased line of all individuals with raised hands
  • That an individual’s hand will be instantly decreased after they speak

Google states the brand-new function will be offered for any conference developed by hosts with Workspace Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Fundamentals, Education Plus, Nonprofit, and G Suite Business accounts.

For the more interesting modifications to Workspace revealed at the I/O 2021 Developers Conference, you’ll need to wait a bit longer. Google simply presented Workspace to anybody with a Google account and allowed its brand-new Chat and Rooms functions (replacements for G Chat and Slack). Larger modifications like clever chips, that makes all Workspace apps more interoperable and fluid, are still a methods off.
