    "In our virtual trivia event, Kahoot! was user-friendly, and allowed us to create an environment for our employees to feel connected while working from home."
    NBCUniversal
    “Kahoot! is a great way to keep people on their toes, and I noticed after the kahoots, that people started to mingle. Kahoot! really helped with organic interaction.”
    Savan Hosseini, Nasdaq
    "Kahoot! builds excitement and a competitive spirit as everyone knows that a kahoot will be a reward for staying. The audience knows that a chance for points or a prize is coming, so they pay more attention to the content outlined in the session.”
    Marisa Doria, Associate Planner, Meetings, Events, & Tradeshows at Teleflex
    “Using Kahoot! added a lot of value, as we could find out what our sales reps had learned. We’d never previously done anything to tie up a session.”

    Frequently asked questions

    What do I need to run Kahoot! during my virtual event?

    Kahoot! runs in your web browser and you will need a subscription from kahoot.com to get started. Once you are ready to host a game, all you have to do is share your screen on a video call to show your Kahoot! game to the audience. Participants will need a second device to log in with the Kahoot! PIN and join the game. You will need a PC or Mac with an updated web browser, a stable, high-speed, wired internet connection, a Kahoot! subscription and a video conferencing system to host a game of Kahoot! virtually. Participants will need one device to follow the video conference and a second device to join the Kahoot! game and play.

    How does Kahoot! work for virtual events?

    Kahoot! works with any video conferencing system – you simply share your screen, show the audience the game PIN and they can log in. Participants can play for free at www.kahoot.it on their phones or in the Kahoot! iOS or Android app.

    Can I use Kahoot! throughout the entire event?

    Yes you can, but you should break it up into multiple rounds of 4-10 minutes each. Once your participants have logged in, they want to finish the round and get to the podium within about 5 minutes. With Player ID you can combine scores from all the games and create a tournament podium on the final day of your event.

    Can I send out the PIN the week before the event?

    No, the PIN is generated once everyone is ready to log in and is unique to every round. As long as all the participants can see the shared Kahoot! screen, they will be able to play.

    Can I use Kahoot! in languages other than English?

    Yes! You can write questions and answers in any language to create a native language experience for participants. With the Kahoot! iOS or Android app, you can play, create, host kahoots and assign self-paced challenges in Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, and Norwegian. More languages are coming soon to our apps and website!

    How long can a one-time event last?

    Your one-time Kahoot! Event plan is active for 3 months. During these 3 months you can enjoy all the features of your plan and test the games with up to 20 players. During the event week, you can host games with up to 100 (bronze) or 2,000 (silver and gold) participants. If you are using your plan for multiple event weeks, we will charge you accordingly.

    What happens after my event?

    If you don’t have an existing Kahoot! subscription, after the 3 month period around your event ends, you’ll have the chance to upgrade to an annual subscription. If you opt out, you will still be able to access your Kahoot! account and kahoots you’ve created with our Kahoot! Basic subscription.

    What is “player identifier” and a “tournament”?

    With a Silver or Gold plan, you can identify participants over multiple kahoots. Players are asked to enter their email address (or a custom identifier of your choosing) when they join your kahoot.

    A tournament allows you to combine scores from multiple kahoots across your event into a final leaderboard and podium. Great for keeping engagement high throughout your entire event and finishing on a high note! We recommend handing out prizes for the final winners as an extra incentive!
