Instagram introduces Polls in Stories


Instagram has added a new feature to Stories which will let users ask questions and have their audience vote on the answer. Yes, it has introduced an interactive poll sticker to let users ask a question and see results from their friends and followers as they vote.

With the update, it has become easy to share a two-option poll right in your story. After a user has taken a photo or video for his/her story, select the “poll” sticker and place it anywhere he would like, he can write out his own question and even customize the poll choices.

After the poll has been shared, friends and followers can immediately start voting and see real-time results. Once someone has voted on a poll, he/she will see which choice is in the lead at any given moment. And if a user watches a story again later, he/she will see the latest results.

Users can check on their own poll results the same way you check to see who has viewed your Story, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

Two new tools to help make stories even more creative: a color picker for text and brushes and an alignment tool for text and stickers have also been introduced.
