Hi Team - Any way or in roadmap to add background music to Slido during Quizzes or polls? Other audience engagement tools provides some sort of background music always.

Hi @Basant,

This is something that we’re definitely looking into! 🎶

Will let you know once we have a more concrete timeline in place.


Hi Alex 


Slido is all good for me except this. Looking forward to more updates from you! 


Thank you.



Hi Alex,

Any update on this? After using Slido for the first time last week after switching from another platform, this functionality is really missing

Hey @Neil B,

Still no update :(

We will make sure to update this thread when there’s any news.

Let me know if we can help with anything else!

Hi team


I have attempted to add music to my PPT slides as a workaround however Slido doesn't seem to like it. When I do it one of a few things happens:

1. It works when we are trialling it and then stops working as soon as we have to present.


2. The music works, but then it doesn't allow anyone to vote. This is the most common one. 


3. It just doesn't work at all, the quiz works, but it won't play the music.


4. It works fine but then won't show the leaders board. 


5. Once so far it has worked fine. 


Can you please help, I don't mind using the workaround but there is a compatibility issue or bug that is stopping it from working consistently. 



Thank you 


Look forward to your reply and support.

Hi @Daryl

Sorry to hear about the issues you’re having with the workaround. 

In this instance, so we can look into a solution together, I would recommend contacting our amazing customer care team by emailing or by going into live chat through your slido admin. They are available 24/5 and will be more than happy to assist you here! 😊

Lets keep this thread alive! We definitely need this feature!!!

Actually we should call this an option, not really a feature! The competition already has this (without workarounds) for a long time...

Sometimes the silence is awkwardly overwhelming in a situation that should be fun.

Any news on this Slido Team?

Hey @Daniel Yamashita ,

Instead of having distracting music or a timer, Typing Indicator enables you to hold inclusive sessions by giving your participants enough time to express their thoughts and letting you know exactly when to move on, thereby making your meetings more time-effective.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
