Google Meet came to everyone’s aid last year when it was badly needed. The video communication service offers very practical features.
Among them is the hand raising function which allows users to easily let moderators know if they want to speak.
Although the freehand feature was released at the end of last year, some users were unable to use it on their Android tablets.
According to several discussions on the Google Support community, the Google Meet hand-up button is missing for several users.
User reports indicate that they have used the editions of Google Workspace where the handshake feature is available. However, the option to use it does not appear in the app on some Android tablets.
I am using Samsung Tab S7, it does not show the raised hand icon during the meeting.
I am trying to use a huawei media pad t3 10 to mark the work, I cannot see the chn when meeting and I cannot see the raised hands. I have reset the tablet, installed and uninstalled, etc.
The very first reports of this issue were revealed right after the hand raise feature was released.
It appears the issue is still causing inconvenience to Android tablet users as the tech giant searches for a way to fix it.
An expert from the Google Support community also said that the issue is under review by the Google Meet team, but there is no ETA on when it will be resolved.
This issue has been reported to Google Meet. I don’t know when you will receive the update.
This problem has been reported to engineers. You’ll also want to report this to the Google Meet support team, as the feature doesn’t appear to have been included in the Android tablet version of the app.
It is possible that people experiencing this issue have used a previous version or cannot update Google Meet on their Android tablets.
Additionally, an affected user said that the issue was fixed for him after manually updating the Google Meet app through the latest update APK.
So if you are having this issue on your Android tablet, you can also grab the latest Google Meet APK from here and let us know if that fixes the problem for you by leaving a comment below.
Hopefully Google will fix the Google Meet hand raise button issue as soon as eligible Google Workspace users have been dealing with it for some time now.
That said, we’ll come back with more details as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
