Polls in Google Meet

You will soon (within the next week) be seeing the new Google Meet Polls feature.  To launch or respond to polls, use the web version of Meet.

As a meeting moderator, you can create polls for participants to vote on.

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.

After the meeting, the moderator is automatically emailed a report of the poll results. The report includes the names and answers of the participants.
