If you’ve ever been to a meeting where no one asked a question, you’re probably in the minority. Questions are common in Google Meet calls, just like in any other meeting. So make it easier for your participants by organizing a Q&A session.
When you enable the Q&A feature during a Google Meet meeting, participants can ask written questions throughout the meeting. This allows you to work through the questions at your own pace, when there is a topic transition, or if a specific question applies at that time.
You can then filter the questions, increase one, hide it or remove it, and solve a question by providing the answer. Best of all, you get a report at the end of Google Meet, with questions asked and actions taken.
Enabling the Q&A feature in Google Meet
To activate the Q&A feature and start the questions, launch Google Meet, click on the Activities icon in the bottom right, then choose “Q&A”.
