7/22 Allow Google Meet participants to ask questions or respond to polls anonymously

Modified on Wed, 21 Dec 2022 at 09:14 AM

19.7.2022 I Google Meet
Google Meet now allows meeting participants an anonymous way to ask questions or participate in a survey organized during the meeting. The feature is automatically visible to participants in the comment field as a reply method, but can be disabled by the meeting host or co-host. In polls, the anonymous response method is automatically turned off, but can be turned on when creating it.

To turn on Q&A 

  1.  In the meeting, tap the screen and then Menu  and then Host Controls 

  2. Scroll to "Meeting Activities" and turn on Allow Questions in Q&A Toggle ON.

Tip: By default, questions can be asked anonymously. To disallow this, uncheck Allow Anonymous questions Toggle Off .

Ask a question

When you ask a question, everyone in the meeting gets a notification.

When you ask a question anonymously, your details are hidden from:

  • Other meeting participants

  • The moderators

  • Your Workspace Admin

The feature can be used for example in large meetings, where the possibility to answer anonymously can encourage participants to participate in the discussion.


All customers except Google Workspace Business Starter, Education Fundamentals, Education Standard, Frontline customers, or legacy G Suite Basic customers.


Available now.
