We've all had questions in a meeting and didn't want to interrupt. With the Raise Hand function you can easily let your presenter know you have a question or comment without disrupting the flow of your meeting!


When you are in a meeting or proximity call, the first step is to select the emoji menu from the bottom left-corner of SoWork.

After selecting the emoji menu, you should see ✋ Raise Hand at the bottom of the menu

Once you raise your hand you will see a new menu open under your video settings where you can see who all has raised their hand, and your emoji menu option will change to ✋Lower Hand
