Kahoot!’s new Team Mode boosts collaboration

Posted on April 14, 2016

We’ve designed Kahoot!’s new Team Mode to nurture collaboration, teamwork, leadership skills and good communication. We believe it’s also the perfect way to play Kahoot! in learning environments without 1:1 devices!

Aligned with our founding principles of ‘Social, Play, Learn’, Kahoot!’s brand new Team Mode is an even more collaborative way to play learning games - plus it’s great fun, too.

How to play Kahoot! in Team Mode

How you form teams and play is up to you, but here are a few pointers to get you started:

​Step 1:

Ask players to get into small teams, with one device per team.


​Step 2: ​

When you find a kahoot you want to play (whether it’s one of your own, or one of the 7+ million public kahoots), just hit the ‘Play’ button as usual.

TOP TIP: Need more time for discussion? Click “Edit” on a kahoot you’ve created or duplicated, then adjust the timer settings for each question before you play.

​Step 3:​

You’ll notice a new option to choose between ‘Classic’ and ‘Team Mode’. Select ‘Team Mode’ to launch the kahoot.


Step 4:​

The team captains (or the people holding their team’s device) each enter their team’s name, then add their players’ nicknames.
