Do I have to pay for players in a live game of Kahoot!?

No. Players don’t need an account or a business license to join your live Kahoot! games.

How many players can join a Kahoot! game?

With Kahoot! Premium, you can have up to 2,000 simultaneous participants in one live game and up to 2,000 participants in mobile challenges.

What's the difference between a "regular" kahoot game and an "identified" kahoot game?

During a classic live kahoot game, players join using nicknames. Nicknames are fun and allow for anonymity in a game. Depending on your plan, up to 2,000 players can join a game using a nickname!

When you host a tournament or want to assign personalized learning, players can join using a nickname but are also identified with email or another parameter. Player identifiers are only visible to the host, allowing to measure training effectiveness over time. Identified games are available with our Premium+ training & development plan.

Can I share a log-in with a colleague?

No, each license of Kahoot! for business is limited to 1 user. Sharing a log-in will impact the user experience. Instead, we recommend that you share and co-create content with your colleagues in your safe and secure team space from separate log-ins. To join a team, ask the admin to add you to the team or reach out to us for support.

What is “player identifier”?

Player identifier is a feature that allows you to identify players from game to game. Players are asked to enter their email address (or a custom identifier of your choosing) when they join your game. This identifier shows in reports and allows you to use our “combined report” feature.

If players use our Android or iOS mobile 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 games in the future.

What is a “tournament” and a "combined report"?

A tournament allows you to combine scores from multiple, identified games into one report. You can quickly compile a multi-game “tournament” leaderboard and podium. You can only combine reports from games that had “player identifier” on, as player identifiers are necessary to collate data.

What is “personalized learning”?

Personalized learning uses proven learning methods such as spacing and testing to help learners retain information and master content. After a live game, our Android or iOS mobile app will encourage players to repeat questions they got wrong. The app will space these repeats out over the course of seven days. Each time, questions they answer incorrectly are asked again until they answer correctly. As the host, you can see from your game’s advanced report leaderboard each player’s progress through personalized learning.
