How do I play a kahoot on my own?

Kahoot! Is typically played live in group settings. However, you can play alone too! You can use our iOS/Android app to play your kahoot on a single device, or use our preview option to host a live kahoot with a phone simulated on the same screen.

How to use the single-player mode in Kahoot! app

  1. Install the app on your iOS or Android device.
  2. Tap on the kahoot you like (for example, one of the recommended games from the start screen or one you find through our search).
  3. Tap Play.
  4. Choose “Curious K!rew” - you’ll be playing on your own with our virtual characters Mal, Nancy, Shima and Robyn giving you company.

How to find the preview option

  1. Go to and log in to your account or sign up.
  2. Find the game you want to preview.
  3. Select the kahoot’s title or cover image to view more details.
  4. Use the more options button (three vertical dots) to find the Preview option.

How to preview a kahoot

  1. Select the Preview option.
  2. The left-side screen imitates the experience of hosting the kahoot.
  3. The right-side screen imitates a device you use as a controller when you play the kahoot.
