In Google Meet, a moderator can create polls for participants to vote on. During the meeting, participants get a notification about the poll and can submit a response. After the meeting, the moderator gets an email report with the poll results, which includes the names and answers of the participants.

Important: To launch or respond to polls, use the web version of Meet.
