Polling is a handy feature provided by Google Meet. As a teacher, you can use Meet polls for a variety of educational purposes including: empowering students voice by involving them in making decisions about their learning, brainstorm ideas for a topic or class event, gather feedback, and you can even use them to conduct formative assessments. 


As the moderator of the video call, you can create a poll and ask students to answer and vote for the questions. Participants are instantly notified of the poll and after the poll is over, you will be emailed a report with details on the answers and names of those who took part in the poll.  Please note that polling in Google Meet is not available for everyone but fortunately it is  available "to teachers and students with a G Suite Enterprise for Education license."
