    This does not help for business.  It says that I can send a link to others within my company, but the link is not provided.

    We’re working with iPads in school. Is there any possibility to share a Kahoot! quickly on Apple classroom or padlet?

    The share pop up does not show for me. Instead, I'm directed straight to copy link.

     

    Using Kahoot app on Android.

    Can I use Kahoot inside a PowerPoint presentation?

    Something is different with the sharing link this year on Kahoot. In the past, when I would share the link with my students on Google Classroom, it would lead them to a site where they could play a Kahoot review game without having to enter a code. When I share the Kahoot with my students this year, it does not lead them to a review game at all. They are directed to my create.Kahoot.it. I have tried both creating an assignment through Google Classroom and copying the link to share through Google Classroom. When they click on play the game the join code pops up on the screen waiting for players to join. The other thing that is visible is just a list of the questions with the option to hide or show all answers, not in game form at all. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if there is some other issue, but I would like to be able to share my Kahoot with my students so that they can use them as study aids. I feel that a good way to do this is if the Kahoot is in game form so that they have to choose the answer they feel is the correct answer, and test themselves to see how well they understand the concept. Thank you so much for you help with this matter. I have enjoyed using this resource with my students, and hope to continue to be able to use it in a beneficial manor.

    In response to the above comment, I was also having the same problem.  I looked around on the site and found the "challenge" button listed beside the "play" button on my Kahoot.  If you choose "challenge", it will send the game pin to your students through Remind or Google Classroom and they can put in the game pin using the app on their phones.  I tried it at home as a student and it worked perfect.  I hope this helps you!

    Previously I would offer extra credit to students for creating Kahoots and sharing them with me to play as a class, are they no longer able to do this?  Now they have created the Kahoots and shared the link with me but I am unable to access them.

    I had this very same problem this year, very frustrating. You have to share the Kahoot using the challenge option now, Kahoot changed the format. When you click on the challenge, you have the option to copy the link to share with your students. I hope this information helps.

    Very frustrated!  I like to challenge my students will review kahoot games!  However, when I challenge my students with the copied link it takes them to the page that they are required to download the app in order to play. And even then you can only download the app off of a smartphone! Have I set up something wrong?

    Same complaint as above. I used to be able to share the Kahoot link and it would take the students to a playable version, but now it brings them to the editor where they can view all of the answers. The "Challenge" option is too complicated for my needs and I do not like that it requires students to download the app. Very disappointed.

    Please bring back the old playable link. Frustration with not being able to still use this option as conveniently as before has led me to searching other solutions from other developers. I loved KAHOOT, but the old playable link was a big part of it. I am looking for somewhere that offers something similar and will migrate to that platform when I find it.

    Hi, I would like to be able to edit the Kahoots created by my students, so these are revised before being presented in class. If my students share their quizzes with my, will I be able to do this? Also, will I be able to share the link of the revised Kahoots with the rest of the students and play it both live and as a challenge out of the class? Many thanks!

    Hi again, I had the same problem as described above. When I click on a link to play a game, it leads me to the editing interface which has the questions and answers to the game, and then the users will have to click "play".  Will this be fixed? If the students see the answers, there is no game.

    In addition, in this new version, do the students need to have an account or download the app in order to play? 

    I am using Kahoot! as part of a compulsory assignment this year and I hope that it works as good as before.

    Many thanks!

    I have two accounts. How can I combine them into one? Sharing is not an option for me because I have too many games in my old account.

    Not a fan of sharing the link, and require the students to download the app. These students all have chromebooks, why do they need to install the app on their personal phones?

    This is super frustrating because you have the option of directly sharing the kahoot to Google Classroom, yet they are required to download the app.

    Please make it shareable within the website or Google classroom. Some students don't have phones.

    I'm having my students create their own Kahoots and then post a link to theirs on a Google Doc. However, when the kids click on the link to play someone else's it asks for a game code. The game code changes every time, so there's no way for the kids to play. Can this please be changed? Otherwise, I'll just use Quizizz instead of Kahoot.
