Google has announced the upcoming launch of two useful features for its Google Meet video conferencing service, already familiar to Zoom users. These are the functions of polls and Q&A (Questions and Answers). They will work for paid users from October 8.
The Q&A feature allows you to launch a handy chat where participants upload questions and moderators select some of them and answer. As noted by the developers, the feature is especially useful for teachers and in business.
Moderators can also create surveys. The results of such polls will only be visible to moderators until they decide to publish them. Surveys, for example, can be used to remotely check on students.
Google launched the Google Meet for all users in the spring of 2020. At that time, the service was seen as one of the best alternatives to the super-popular Zoom.
The other day, it extended the free use of Google Meet video conferencing service without restrictions.
