There are two game modes to choose from when hosting a live kahoot. In particular, Team mode adjusts gameplay to accommodate groups of players sharing a device to answer.
One thing Team mode introduces is an opportunity for teams to discuss which answer to choose before it's time to respond. After the question has displayed for 5 seconds, there are 5 additional seconds of “team talk” time where the question and answers are displayed before the question timer starts. This gives teams time to discuss what the correct answer is.
Some feel that 5 seconds is too short, or that it's not needed at all. It would be great if this timer could be manually adjusted or disabled.
Currently, any known workarounds involve using Classic mode to avoid team talk or duplicating questions to offer more time to discuss. When duplicating questions, be sure to disable "award points" and set all answers as correct on questions the first time they appear. Though players will see what other groups responded with, they won't know which answer is correct.
