Opinion: Why is ending zoom meetings so awkward?

I realize there are more pressing issues to solve with #machinelearning but can't Zoom come up with a gesture or voice-activated feature to stop the meeting as soon as it's over to spare introverts like me from those clumsy moments. Does this happen to you? If so, what do you think should prompt the ending?

  • πŸ‘‹πŸΌ A wave gesture?
  • πŸ’¬ The words "zoom end"?
  • ⬅️ A slide left gesture?
  • 🀷🏽 None: Suck it up!
