With the new Google Meet polls feature, moderators will have the ability to set up multiple questions, visible only to themselves. And launch the poll when they see fit. The participants will then answer the questions. And the moderator can share the results with the group in a bar graph.
The question and answer function of Google Meet is another of the most demanded features by users. It allows the hosts to activate the sending of questions so that the participants can formulate their doubts in a structured way. So that the moderators can solve them in a structured way when they see fit.
The new functions will arrive from next October 8. However, the release will be gradual. So you may not be able to see them for a few days or weeks.
