"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.”
Dawn Rigby, Marketing Director at Xylem Marketing, a division of Advanced Turf Solutions

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 kahoot, all you have to do is share your screen on a video call to show your kahoot to the audience. Participants will need a second device to join the kahoot. As the host, 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.

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 join the kahoot. 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?

Absolutely! You can present your key information on Kahoot! slides or import a slide deck directly into Kahoot! and add interactive questions between slides. That way, you don’t have to switch between software. Presenting with Kahoot! is a great way to keep energy levels high. Alternatively, if you are just using Kahoot! to quiz attendees, we recommend completing a kahoot in five minutes to maximize engagement levels.

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

No, the PIN for a live kahoot 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. You can, however, send self-paced challenges to event attendees to complete asynchronously during the event week.

Can I use Kahoot! in languages other than English?

es! 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, Norwegian, Dutch, Turkish, Polish, and Japanese. 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 three months. During these three months, you can enjoy all the features of your plan and test the kahoots with up to 20 participants. During the event week, you can host kahoots 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, when the three-month period 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.

How do all the features work?

Check out our YouTube playlist with a series of video tutorials that will show you how you get the most out of Kahoot!, including how to brand your kahoots, assign challenges, facilitate brainstorms, and more!

You can find more information on our Resources page.

What is an interactive presentation?

You can import existing slides or create new ones in Kahoot! and then add interactive questions and polls to create engaging presentations that everyone remembers. We call these interactive presentations. Our slide importer supports .ppt (PowerPoint), PDF (you can export Google Slides as PDFs), and .key (Keynote) formats. Read more about creating interactive presentations with Kahoot!.

Can I use Kahoot! to survey the audience?

Yes, you can gather participants’ feedback, opinions, and ideas in real-time with polls, word clouds, open-ended questions, and brainstorm.

What is player identifier?

Player identifier is a feature that allows you to identify participants from kahoot to kahoot. Participants enter their email address (or a custom identifier of your choosing) when they join your kahoot so you can identify the participant behind the nickname. This identifier shows in reports and allows you to use our combined report and tournament features. If participants use our Android or iOS app to join, their identifier is saved after the first time they enter it so they won’t have to enter it again when joining your kahoots in the future.

What is a Kahoot! Tournament?

A tournament is a great way to build engagement across a series of kahoot sessions. In the Reports section, you can create a tournament leaderboard by combining scores from multiple kahoots into one report which you can share with participants. You can only combine reports from kahoots that had the “player identifier” feature on, as player identifiers are necessary to collate data.
