We’re thrilled to announce that today, we’re rolling out Slido for Microsoft Teams.

From now on, you can bring more interaction into your Teams meetings with Slido’s core features: Live polls, quizzes, and Q&A.

With Slido for Teams, your team members will be able to vote in polls, participate in a quiz, or ask questions for a Q&A round without leaving your Teams meeting – everything happens in one place.

Our app is part of Microsoft’s brand new platform that enables a more powerful virtual meeting experience for Teams users as they shift toward fully remote or hybrid work environments.

Let’s look at what Slido for Teams allows you to do:

  • Manage Slido directly in your Teams meetings
    Prepare and manage all Slido interactions for your team within your scheduled Teams meeting.
  • Meet and interact in the same place
    Let your teammates vote in polls, take part in a quiz, or ask questions for a Q&A directly in your Teams meeting through a handy interaction panel.
  • Collect insights before and after your meeting
    Allow your team to ask questions and vote in polls in advance, or complete a feedback survey after your meeting.
