Raising Hand



I was on a Zoom meeting and twice in the meeting my Zoom hand was raised.  I never touched the raise my had feature.  Does the Host or Co-host have the ability to raise the attendee's virtual hand?   This interrupted the meeting.    Please advise

I suspect this might be happening due to Gesture recognition - if this feature is enabled a raised palm in the Zoom video will trigger the Raised hand reaction. 


To check if the feature is enabled please go to your Zoom client

  1. Click your profile picture, then click Settings.
  2. Click General Patricia_B_0-1653298489454.png
