Screen grab of the tool bar including the new reactions functions

New Microsoft Teams meetings functionality now available to policing

In addition to virtually raising your hand in a Teams meeting, it’s now possible to express yourself in other ways.

While you are in a meeting, hover over 'Show Reaction' in meeting controls at the upper-right area of the screen, where 'raise hand' was before.

Raise Hand now appears alongside four live reactions, including Like , Love , Applause , and Laugh.

Next, to share a live reaction with everyone during a meeting, hover over Live Reactions and then choose the reaction that you want to express.

Your reaction will appear for a few seconds in your live video feed or on your profile picture at the lower right.

If you or someone else is sharing content in a meeting, such as a desktop, window, PowerPoint deck, photo, video, or whiteboard, reactions will float up from the bottom of the screen for a few seconds. Corresponding reactions also appear on the profile pictures of participants who send reaction.

Note: You won't see this reaction if you are in Together mode or Large Gallery view.
