Kahoot! Announces Deeper Integration With Zoom
Kahoot!, the global game-based learning platform company, announced that it is partnering with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. to offer the Kahoot! app for Zoom, enabling its users to access, host, and play Kahoot! games directly from Zoom Meetings. Kahoot! was announced as a Zapp Launch Partner for this integration at Zoom’s annual virtual Zoomtopia user conference.
Audience engagement and interaction remains the biggest challenge in virtual meetings. As many schools and businesses have gone virtual, this integration will make it easier for teachers and professionals to make distance learning and remote working more engaging by adding Kahoot!’s game-based interactivity and learning to their Zoom classes or meetings.

Through the Kahoot! Zapp, users will be able to access, host, and play Kahoot! games with other meeting participants without ever leaving the Zoom call or needing a second device. Meeting hosts will have immediate access to their Kahoot gameplay data and can share kahoots with those who couldn’t join the meeting, and participants who played a kahoot can work to improve their score.
Kahoot! drives engagement by harnessing friendly competition and enabling meeting attendees to actively participate. Professionals can also take advantage of Kahoot!’s functionality to host interactive presentations as part of its Kahoot! 360 offering, which provides the tools to create presentations that engage, connect, and inspire on Zoom.
