Hello everyone,

My MicroSoft Teams meetings, when I click the hand up function, a warning tells me that this isn't working.

Also, I see my Teams controls at the bottom of my screen and other people tell me that I should be clicking icons at the top right. Does anyone have any insight on this please?

Thank you all,
