Reactions in meeting

If you want to enable gestures, make sure you're sharing your video and that your computer meets the following requirements:

  • Operating System—Windows 10 version 10.0.17763 or later

  • Processor—four physical cores or more

  • Memory—4 GB or more of RAM

Click Reactions and then choose one of the following options:

  • Choose an emoji.
  • Turn on Recognize hand gestures. Then, if you have a question, you can physically raise your hand in front of your camera. Hold the gesture until the blue circle is drawn on the screen and the reaction animation plays. The app recognizes your gesture (raised hand, thumbs up, thumbs down, and clapping hands) and shares it with everyone in the meeting.

    If you stop making the gesture before the animation plays, your gesture won't be shared.

    If you changed your mind and no longer want to raise your hand, click Reactions and select Lower hand.

Others see your reaction in the lower-right corner of your video or in the lower-left corner of the meeting window along with your name, depending on whether your video is within view.
