      Hi there,

      My name is Jay and I work at Kahoot!

      We’re sorry to hear you’ve been experiencing the issue of players from outside the classrooms joining your kahoots. We understand that this can be very disruptive and unsettling, so recently, we’ve been investigating some ways we can help prevent this.

      We’d like to share with you a 'Game Lock' prototype we’ve been working on. This prototype adds an extra step to joining a kahoot, which helps secure the game to only the players in your classroom. The extra step will be present through the game, so players can rejoin at any point.

      To activate this prototype, all you need to do is:

      - Press the Play Button of the kahoot you wish to play
      - Press L on your Keyboard while on the Game Option Screen
      - The screen will then refresh, showing the Game Lock prototype has been enabled
      - Players need to drag the tiles into the right order as the Game Lock shows so they can access the game.

      This is a prototype, which we’ll need your help to keep improving, so we’d greatly appreciate hearing your feedback at: http://bit.ly/k-game-lock

      We hope this helps! On top of this, you can click on a nickname to kick out that player — if it was someone in your classroom you'll see that their device screen will turn red.

          On each image in a question, we should be able to choose form the following choices:
          - Show - shows the image while the timer counts down
          - Reveal - initially hides the image and gradually reveals the image by one small quadrant at a time
          - Blur - blurs the image
          - Hide - to reveal the image, you have to use the "show image" button at the bottom of the results screen.

          I believe a drop down to select between these would give better control on how I can present information, making questions more dynamic.

                Currently, the "Preview" button is hidden away on a kahoot's summary page. Please add a "Preview" button to a more accessible area, like next to the "Play" button wherever a "Play" button is shown.

                  Visually impaired students struggle to differentiate between the different colored answer options. It'd be great if there was a game option to change the answer boxes on the host screen and on student devices to black and white.

                      That's a very interesting idea! You can currently add our website as a bookmark and then display the bookmark bar in your Chrome browser:
                      https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95745?hl=en

                      Could you share some context as to why having an app in the Chrome Web Store would be more preferable?

                        As a user hosting a kahoot, I would like an option on the loading page to stop my tablet/mobile screen from going to sleep. This would improve my Kahoot!'ing experience, reducing opportunities for participants to disconnect (ex: when my iPhone screen goes to sleep, all/some participants are disconnected).

                                Hey there! Our users do this with their favourite screensharing software - eg Skype, Hangout, Appear.in - projected to each of the classrooms. This way you can also see and hear the other classes! :)

                                  Hey there! Before we implement this, you can create a quiz question as a "No points question" and set every answer to be correct. There is a menu for this on the question screen when in creation mode.

                                    Hi - we agree! Therefor at the last screen once you have completed a game of Kahoot! you can download the results.

                                    You can also download results from all previous games you have played under 'My results'.

                                    This can be accessed by clicking on your username in the top right corner, and then 'My results'.

                                    You can also access the latest 3 game results from the right hand panel of the landing page at https://create.kahoot.it/

                                      Hey, this is a good idea and we have few ideas for how we will do it. You are aware that if you change the timing of the questions you get a different music ?

                                        Great to see all the engagement around this feature request. We are evaluating this in context of new game modes, so stay tuned and please keep adding your ideas.

                                        Why does the current game mode not support questions on student screens?

                                        The playing side of Kahoot! is a result of several year's research at the Norwegian University of Technology and Science. Many different approaches were considered, tested and measured for impact in terms of student engagement and learning value.

                                        It was overwhelmingly clear that the unique experience Kahoot! creates within classrooms diminished the moment a student didn't need to look up and away from their personal device. What's known as the "Blackberry prayer" (when a person is fixated on their own device, oblivious to what's happening around them) is something we absolutely want to avoid.

                                        Thus, the Kahoot! we see today is designed to create a fun, social and playful learning environment, engaging students through gaming elements that stimulate healthy competition and a will to learn, and encourage students to communicate and engage in conversation with their classmates around the educational content they are playing - because they are forced to look up to the room around them by having the questions and answers displayed at the front.

                                        For more insights into the research that has gone into Kahoot!, please read these articles linked from the FAQ.

                                        Thanks again Zack, we're looking into a solution for this. Inclusivity is a big deal to us and this is a specific challenge we're looking forward to cracking! Stay tuned.
