Google is still bringing a lot of features to its Meet video-conference services as more people and businesses use it amid coronavirus prompted work from home.
From October 8th, the video chat service is adding Q&A and polls features for paid enterprise customers only, according to a post on G Suite Updates blog.
Q&A allows those hosting or moderating a chat to allow participants to send questions. Other participants can upvote submitted questions, while moderators can choose which questions to answer.
All questions on Google Meet are automatically sent to hosts after the meeting. According to Google, this feature will be very useful to teachers and businesses.
Moderators can create polls that remain viewable only to other mods until they decide to launch them. When a poll is closed, moderators receive the results, which they can share with participants. At the end of the meeting, hosts are automatically sent poll results.
From October 8th, the features will begin to roll out gradually that’s to say it could take up to two weeks for the features to show up.
Q&A and Polls will only be available to users with paid accounts, such as G Suite Essentials, G Suite Business, G Suite Enterprise, and G Suite Enterprise for Education.
