Hi all, there is a way to do this...
1 You can add a question with different answer options on a sheet you're sharing in screen
2.Then type @forms in the chat
3.Open Forms app, create new form.
4. Select the correct number of answer options and click send.
5. Then the poll will be in the chat and the participants can answer the poll.
Unfortunately there is no way to prepare the poll questions this way beforehand, so that's why you'll have to prepare it on a sheet and simply add a poll with answer options "option 1", etc. to the chat, because otherwise it would take too much time to create the poll question and type in all the answers yourself.
It's not ideal, but it works for my classes. Students/participants need to have the app otherwise they can't see the chat.
