It’s really fun and engaging to play Kahoot! in a group setting when all the players are in the same room. However, there are several possibilities to play with other people remotely as well! You can try connected Kahoot!’ing or challenge your friends with a kahoot to play in our mobile app.
Connected Live Kahoot!'ing
Using video calling tools or live streaming services, you’re able to loop in players from anywhere in the world. You can set up remote games with another classroom, office, school, or business.
- Video calling services - Tools like Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Microsoft Teams allow you to share your screen with remote participants. These are great when you have a small, private group and want face-to-face communication with them.
- Live streaming services - Services like Twitch, YouNow, Facebook Live, or YouTube Live also let you share your screen online with others. These are ideal if you want to host a kahoot publicly with a large audience. Please check bandwidth recommendations when expecting a large audience.
How to host a kahoot live via video conferencing
- Log in to your Kahoot! account and find your kahoot to host.
- Connect to your video conferencing tool of choice. Make sure your webcam, microphone, and speaker are turned on.
- Click the play button on the kahoot you want to host. Then click "Present" or "Teach", to launch a live game session.
- Recommended: check that game options are set correctly (you may want to enable "show question and answers on players' devices".
- Share your screen, so participants can see the game PIN and join your game.
- Host the kahoot as usual, taking care to not speak over the music that plays during the timer countdown - you can either:
▶ Wait until all responses are in to talk
▶ Mute or lower game music volume
