MeetingPulse Audience engagement solutions
Switch to MeetingPulse as the Sun Sets on Microsoft Pulse
By Aaron Lifshin on

Several years ago, Microsoft introduced a product very similar to the MeetingPulse audience response software. Now, Microsoft Pulse is officially shutting down. We kindly invite any Microsoft Pulse users to shift to MeetingPulse to meet their interactive meeting needs during this time of transition. When you go to the Microsoft Pulse site, you now see the following notice:

We hope you have enjoyed using Microsoft Pulse. We are writing to let you know that Microsoft will be discontinuing Pulse as a free public service on June 30, 2017.

If you have Pulses with results you would like to preserve, you can use the producer tool to download the results in csv or Excel formats. After June 30, 2017, the service will be shut down and no results will be retrievable.

Thanks again for your interest in our product; we have greatly enjoyed building it and hope you found it useful.

Like MeetingPulse, Microsoft Pulse provided polling, pulse, and live voting features. Also like MeetingPulse, Microsoft’s product was effective in the interactive meeting realms of broadcast, meetings, education, events, and research.

During it’s active period a couple of years ago, Microsoft Pulse’s most notable applications included the following: The 2015 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, 2015 CNN Republican Primary Debates, Britian’s 2015 Sky News Labour Leadership Debates, MSNBC’s Daily Implementation, and CBS News: Civil Rights 50 Years Later.

At MeetingPulse, we offer very similar audience response software features and more – and we aren’t going anywhere any time soon. In order to join us in order to ease your transition, whether via free trial or membership, visit the MeetingPulse site and click on the “Get Started” shown below.



At MeetingPulse, we provide a simple and convenient browser-based audience response solution. Our real-time survey and polling software runs easily from any browser, so you’ll never need to download an app. Anyone can easily participate using their mobile device or computer via a short link. MeetingPulse audience response software was developed with simplicity in mind and offers a wide array of customizable options to fit your interactive meeting needs.

    I think you should correct your post – it is not good to share wrong information about your competitor. Because of Microsoft Pulse feature wasn’t shut down. The Microsoft’s official realise is saying:Updated feature: Microsoft Pulse is now available in Skype // Date: June 30, 2017 // Effective today, Microsoft Pulse will no longer be a FREE public service, but will now be an exclusive service for Skype Meeting Broadcast. You can start using this feature today.
    How does this affect me?
    Microsoft Pulse is a voting app that enables meeting attendees to participate in the event in real time, which keeps them engaged and gives organizers up-to-date information about how event information is being received.

    Skype Meeting Broadcast users will now be able to find the new Microsoft Pulse URL in the Skype Meeting Broadcast Portal. Any currently scheduled Skype Meeting Broadcast meetings as well as those scheduled after June 30 will continue to work with Microsoft Pulse with no impact to any meetings. Microsoft Pulse campaigns will be managed through the new URL; previously created campaigns will persist.
