How do I use the Raise Hand feature in Webex?

This article details how to use the raise hand feature in Webex.

To gain the attention from the moderator or Webex presenter, participants can use the “raise your hand” feature.
Note: This feature is only available on the desktop apps. Browser-based participants will not have access to the raise hand feature.

To use the feature:
  1. Find your name on the participant list, and hover over your name. A Raise Hand icon will appear.
  2. Click on the Raise Hand button which will place a small hand icon next to your name in the participant list. 

Hand Raise icon
     
      3. Click on the Lower Hand button to withdraw the request. 


If there are multiple raised hands, the moderator will call on participants in the order in which the requests were received. The order in which the attendees click on the Raise hand icon appears when you are a presenter in the Webex Training. Note: The Raise Your Hand feature is not accompanied with a sound alert.

You can visit Webex Help Center for more information.
