KwizzBit utilises its online quiz platform to host virtual quizzes for pubs, businesses and families at
home during lockdown.
Adapting to the nationwide lockdown, the smartphone pub quiz company, KwizzBit, is facilitating
virtual quizzes for pubs to stay in contact with their customers, remote working businesses and
families at home.
KwizzBit is a cloud-based service which means quizzes can be hosted and played online from the
comfort of their own homes, with one student pub in Manchester recently playing with a former
international exchange student in Cuba.
Hosts can run a virtual pub quiz by logging into their account and streaming a feed to players
using any video-communication application like Zoom, YouTube Live & Twitch.
Players join quizzes by using two devices. The first device (e.g. laptop, tablet) is used to view the
host’s stream. The second (e.g. a smartphone) is used to answer the questions.
Scores are calculated automatically with faster answers worth more points and entered into
leaderboards to identify the winner.
Pubs, which are often at the centre of local communities, are utilising the software to
communicate with their regular customers.
Depending on the pub’s social media following this has ranged from a dozen players playing an
intimate quiz on Zoom to games hosted on YouTube Live with up to 375 people.
Founder and managing director of KwizzBit Mark Walsh said:
“There’s a genuine sense of coming together across social media with pubs hosting virtual quiz nights for their local communities despite physical social distancing measures. It’s keeping people sane!”
The virtual shift has also prompted KwizzBit to create subscription packages for remote working
businesses who regularly meet using Zoom & Microsoft Teams.
Business subscriptions offer bespoke quiz writing for employee training, as well as full access to
KwizzBit’s library of 3500+ quizzes for team building. Other features include custom branding and
the ability to connect 20-350+ players at any one time.
Commenting on the shift into a new market, Mark said:
“It’s not just pubs who want to stay connected, it’s businesses too. Working from home can present its own unique challenges like lower productivity, morale and loneliness.
“Using KwizzBit allows companies to actively engage with their employees in a fun, interactive
way that can help boost their spirits”.
New customer, Stacey Adams, who works Rider Levett Bucknall, a property management firm in
“The quiz went down a storm in our virtual pub lunch. It’s so important to stay connected and have fun whilst we are all working from home”.
Since quarantine began, KwizzBit has also experienced a huge spike in sign-ups from families looking to entertain themselves.
In response, an affordable family-orientated subscription has been introduced, which allows up to five people to play together.
Birmingham-based Jo Gaddy, who plays with her family at home, says:
“It’s great. We play against our three grown-up children who we can’t see at the moment because of the lockdown.”
KwizzBit is on track to launch new developments to the system which will enhance the
gameplay experience for both hosts and players.
