From polls and word clouds to multiple-choice and true/false questions, there are a whole bunch of ways to keep people energized during a kahoot session!

But it’s not just our awesome range of question types that keep participants on the edge of their seats. With Kahoot!, you can create media-rich content that helps to maximize engagement in meetings, presentations, training sessions, and events! For example, you can:

  • Access millions of high-quality pictures from Getty Images in our premium image library or upload your own images
  • Find billions of GIFs, stickers, and animated emojis thanks to our brand-new GIPHY integration
  • Embed any YouTube video by copying and pasting the link into your question or presentation slide

Images, GIFs, and videos are a simple yet powerful way to increase participant focus and make knowledge stick. Our brains love visual information. In fact, we recall 80% of what we see, 20% of what we read, and 10% of what we hear. Kahoot!’s media options help to spark interest, increase understanding, and reinforce messages.

Animate your kahoots to animate your audience!

Kahoots just became a whole lot more fun and engaging! Thanks to our brand-new GIPHY integration, you can now add GIFs and other animated content to new or existing kahoots. You have a whopping 10 billion pieces of content to choose from, ensuring you can always find the perfect GIF for every question and presentation slide.

Are you hosting an in-person meeting? Or how about virtually onboarding new hires? No matter the setting, insert GIPHY content into your kahoot and see how animated material boosts engagement. We bet you’ll be surprised by the results.

Every day, GIPHY helps over 700 million people communicate in a fun and unique way. And you can now show off your creative flair and include trending memes, internet classics, or funny movie quotes in your kahoots. Such GIFs are a great way to connect with colleagues and make everyone feel at ease. Plus, the more visually appealing and media-rich your kahoot, the more participants pay attention, engage with your content, and retain key information.

How to add GIPHY content to a new or existing kahoot

  1. Log in to your Kahoot! account and click Create in the top navigation bar to start designing a new kahoot. Want to add GIFs to a kahoot you’ve already created? Head to Library in the top navigation bar, find the kahoot you want to make awesome with GIFs, and hit Edit.
  2. Once in the kahoot creator, hit the + symbol above “Find and insert media.” In an existing kahoot, click Remove to delete the current image.
  3. Click GIFs in the left sidebar and choose between standard GIFs and stickers. A sticker is a GIF with a transparent background.
  4. Enter a search time and select the perfect GIF!

We’re really excited to see how the Kahoot! community uses the GIPHY integration. The integration is currently only available on desktop. It will be added to the app in the near future.
