Polly Announces New Integration With Zoom Apps

The Polly app will streamline Q&A, town halls, and webinars while bringing instant engagement and connection to the Zoom in-meeting experience

SEATTLE--()--Polly today announced the launch of Polly for Zoom Apps, a new type of integration within Zoom Meetings designed to deliver an exceptional virtual meeting experience.

Polly for Zoom Apps is now available to use in the Zoom Meetings experience and can be found in the Zoom Apps Marketplace, which hosts more than 1,400+third-party integrations.

“We are thrilled to offer this integration within Zoom Meetings and to play a role in enhancing the live meeting experience for users around the world,” said Bilal Aijazi‏, CTO and co-founder of Polly. “For those who know and use Polly outside of meetings, we are eager to bring that experience to Zoom Apps and to expand the use case to include all forms of live engagement. The Polly app for Zoom really shows the world all that Polly can be.”

As Zoom has become a critical platform for teams and individuals to stay connected, Polly intends to drive deeper connection with its live engagement tools: icebreaker questions, warmups, multiple choice and open-ended, moderated Q&A, and more.

The Polly app has multiple features aimed at enhancing the Zoom in-meeting experience for live Q&A, town halls, and webinars. Moderators can initiate a Q&A session, and attendees can add questions and upvote responses.

"The Polly app for Zoom includes some incredible functionality for live meetings," said Ross Mayfield, Product Lead, Zoom Apps & Integrations, Zoom. "We have been impressed at what the app has enabled for meeting creators and moderators. The enhancements for all-hands, standups, and town halls are substantial."

In addition, there are many features aimed at building camaraderie within teams, especially for remote work. There is a host of energizer and warmup questions as well as the ability to customize any question type to send uniquely engaging conversation starters to your team. Use cases extend to meeting effectiveness ("Was this meeting a good use of our time?") and even collaboration ("What are your thoughts on this idea?").

The Polly app is available for free today from the Zoom Apps Marketplace.
