Google Meet Q and A

Be on the lookout for the new Google Meet Q and A feature (You should be able to view the  Q and A feature within the next week.)  To use this feature, moderators and participants have to use the web version of Meet. 

Anyone in a meeting can ask questions. 

The questions show until they are deleted or hidden. After a meeting, the moderator gets a detailed report of all the questions.

Anyone who schedules or starts a meeting will be the moderator. There can only be one moderator per meeting. If you transfer a meeting to—or schedule a meeting on—someone else’s calendar, that person might become the moderator.
