Microsoft recently announced that it is making several improvements to the Meeting toolbar in Teams. The goal behind refreshing the Meeting toolbar and adding new features to it is o make it easier for users to navigate meetings and uncover new features as well as capabilities. Here’s everything you need to know about these improvements:

First up is the added capability that allows users to raise their hand via the new dedicated Raise Hand button that can be found in the redesigned Meeting toolbar.

That said, it is worth noting that these improvements have currently been rolled out exclusively to users in the Teams Public Preview channel running on either Windows or macOS. The improvements are likely to be rolled out to general availability in form of a future update.
