During a meeting, you can ask a question verbally and quickly have your audience answer with thumbs up or down, yes or no, or they can request you speed up or slow down. The coffee cup is code for "I need a break!" or they can post a clock reminding you that you're running long.
This beats polls for its ease of implementation and generally fun interaction. Make sure you turn on the option in your Meeting Settings on the Zoom website.
