Updated June 9, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We ask that you pardon us for not having honored out customer commitment to you by providing advance notice of this release. This new release enables users to invoke a Raise Hand reaction by long pressing their Teams Button on their Microsoft Teams certified peripheral. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 90738.
Raise Hand is a popular feature in Teams and is something all users can use, often many times over the course of a meeting. This feature allows users the ability to invoke a Raise Hand reaction during a meeting by simply holding the Teams button on their certified peripheral.
When this will happen
GCC-High: starting mid-July and expect to complete mid-August
How this will affect your organization
While navigating remote working, users may be using a wireless headset and might be away from their mouse and keyboard when they want to raise or lower their hand. With this capability, users can easily create this reaction by pressing the Teams Button on their certified peripheral.
Note: Once the rollout is complete, users will be able to leverage this feature to Raise/Lower their Hand during meetings with their Teams Button on their Teams certified peripherals.
What you need to do to prepare
There is no action required from the IT Admin or user to enable this feature. All of your Teams certified peripherals will automatically support this feature once the rollout is complete.
