Besides interacting via your voice and video, you’ll also find three other ways to interact with others and communicate with the meeting host.
The Chat icon in the bottom icons bar allows you to type messages to everyone and also privately to each other or to the host, or panelists if in a webinar.
In a Zoom Meeting the Participants icon opens the Participants List that allows you to add non-verbal feedback “emoticons” next to your name in the Participants window. These emoticons include a hand up, yes, no, go slower and go faster icons. In the “..More” pop-up you’ll also find more feedback icons for things like thumbs up and down, clapping, taking a break (cute mug icon!) and stepping away (clock icon). Please note that this option is not available to attendees of a Zoom Webinar, such as my Portrait Conversations.
The Reactions icon, which is in the main dock along the bottom, allows you to add a clapping hands or thumbs up icon into your video window. Please note that this option is not available to attendees of a Zoom Webinar, such as my Portrait Conversations.
