Can I create poll on Skype?

Hi,

I currently work for a small organization and we would like to use Skype during a small meeting. Some people will not be able to attend the meeting, so we were thinking about using Skype for them. I know we can do a group call with Skype which is ok for us, but we need a way for people to vote on some subject. I read here that Skype for Business allow poll, but do you know if the normal skype has this option?

If not, do you know a good way to share some polls to our people with results hidden to other people but us?

Thank you

Hi Nic

Thank you for reaching out to us. My name is Margarida, I'm an Independent Advisor Specialist on Microsoft.

I am sorry to say, this feature is only available in Skype for Business, Skype for Business Online and Skype for Business Basic.

If you have Microsoft forms you can create a form with what you want feedback on, and share it with participants for them to vote. Would this help?

Hope this helps!

Thank you, have a great week!
Margarida

Hi Nic727 ,

Thank you for reaching out to the community!

Actually, it is possible with the use of the new version of Skype for Desktop. You may download it through this link:

https://go.skype.com/windows.desktop.download

Once you installed the Skype for Desktop version, you may refer to the screenshots below on how you can initiate a poll on your group chat:

If you are using Skype for Mac, the same steps would apply, the difference is that you may allot a schedule on when will the poll will end or expire.

Let me know if you have further inquiries or clarifications.

Is there any reasons why it's not available on Skype for Windows 10?

If someone has a different version of Skype, can he see the poll too?

Thank you

Hello Nic727 ,

Thank you for the prompt response.

It is also available on the Skype for Windows 10 application. It will only be a different method as it should be available immediately on your message bar. With this said, no worries as if they are either using the Skype for Desktop, Skype for Windows 10 or Skype for Mac, they will see the poll you created. You may refer to the screenshots below on how you can do it using the Skype for Windows 10 app:

Let me know if you have further clarifications.
