This guide provides instructions on signing in to the EchoPoll platform and downloading the EchoPoll desktop companion app that you can use in your PowerPoint presentation. There are two versions for Windows and Mac users.


  • The Mac version works on Mac OS but not iOS so there is no support on iPad for the companion app. iPad users should use EchoPoll web environment.
  • Once you have downloaded the app, each time you open a PowerPoint presentation, the EchoPoll add-ins will be available. You will also be asked if you want to run a polling session, simply cancel if you do not need it.
  • If you want to use the app on the desktop of a lecture room on campus, you can contact ITS to request the app to be installed.
