The Raise Hand Feature

Attendees can use the raise hand option to get the attention of the meeting moderators or to respond to a query. On the Amazon Chime Windows, macOS, and web clients, attendees can use the options available in the meeting chat pane to raise their hand, list all attendees that have raised their hand, clear the raise hand queue, or lower their own hand if they no longer have a question. On iOS and Android clients, attendees can use the meeting bot commands by entering them into the Chat message area to perform similar actions including @meeting raiseHand, @meeting lowerHand, @meeting showQueue, and @meeting clearQueue commands.

How it works

Meeting attendees can raise their hand by choosing the Raise my hand icon under the meeting Chat or by entering @meeting raiseHand in the meeting chat text area. While their hand is raised, their raise my hand icon is highlighted. A message will be added to the meeting Chat indicating that an attendee has raised their hand and the number of attendees with raised hands will be displayed.

To view the queue of raised hands during a meeting, choose Show queue from the Raise hand queue options list or by entering @meeting showQueue in the meeting chat. A message will be added to the meeting Chat that shows the names of the attendees who have raised their hands in the order in which they were raised.

A meeting attendee can lower their hand by choosing the Raise my hand icon when it is highlighted or type @meeting lowerHand in the meeting chat. A message will be added to the meeting Chat that indicates that the attendee has lowered their hand.

To clear the queue, any attendee may choose Clear queue from the Raise hand queue options list or enter @meeting clearQueue in the meeting chat. A message will be added to the meeting Chat that shows the name of the attendee who cleared the raised hand queue.
