How to change kahoot settings: Title
Once you learn how to change kahoot settings, come up with a meaningful title that accurately describes what your kahoot is about. It will help other users find it in search results and understand if it’s relevant.
☝️ You cannot save the game as a full version (it will save as a non-playable draft) without adding the title.
☝️ A title can be up to 95 characters.
How to change kahoot settings: Description
It is easier for other users to find your kahoot on the Discover page by its description than by its questions. You can also add a # in front of words to highlight them as closely related to your kahoot (for example, “A #trivia quiz about #popular #music”).
☝️ Descriptions can be up to 280 characters.
How to change kahoot settings: Cover image
Adding a cover image is an excellent opportunity to give more context to your kahoot. Kahoots with cover images are also boosted slightly by our search algorithm, making them more likely to be found by others than kahoots without a cover image.
☝️ You can upload an image from your computer or from our image library.
☝️ Images need to be:
- PNG, JPEG, or GIF format, in RGB color mode
- No larger than 5MB or 3264x3264 pixels
How to change kahoot settings: Save to
Decide where the kahoot is saved. You can move a kahoot by changing where it’s saved.
☝️ If you are an owner, admin, or member of a shared workspace (team subscription required), you can choose personal folders or team folders.
☝️ Kahoots will have different visibility options based on where they're saved.
How to change kahoot settings: Language
This setting helps other users looking for games in a specific language to find your game in the Discover section of our platform.

How to change kahoot settings: Allow duplication (available with certain plans)
This option allows you to decide whether you want to allow other Kahoot!'ers to copy your game.
☝️ Enable it if you want to make it easier for other users to create content similar to yours. They can adjust it to their needs without affecting the original version.
☝️ Disable this option if you don't want your content to be copied and reused by other creators.
How to change kahoot settings: Lobby video
Paste a YouTube video URL into the Lobby video field and the video will play full screen in the background while players join your game. This can be just a bit of music, some comedic relief, or an instructional video that provides answers to questions they’ll see.
☝️ When a video is added to the lobby the Kahoot! Theme music is automatically disabled.
☝️ Only YouTube videos can be added to the lobby.
How to change kahoot settings: Lobby music
