Using Polls and Q&A in your episode

Polls and Q&A are tools that allow you to interact with your audience on Spotify! Polls are questions that you can ask your audience, and give pre-selected options to your audience to select. Q&A meanwhile allows you to receive custom answers from your audience from a single prompt.
