Instagram introduces a new feature, polls

Instagram has introduced an interactive poll sticker in Instagram Stories that lets you ask a question and see results from your friends and followers as they vote. The sticker lets you create your own question and customise your choices, making sharing stories more fun. Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment. Poll creators can also check the results in real-time – and see exactly who voted for what.

Here’s how you can setup your poll:

After you’ve taken a photo or video for your story, select the “poll” sticker and place it anywhere you’d like — you can write out your own question and even customize the poll choices.

After you’ve shared your poll, your friends and followers can immediately start voting and see real-time results. Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment.

To see your own poll results, swipe up to open the viewers list for that part of your story. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you’ll also see who voted and what option they chose.

To see your own poll results, swipe up to open the viewers list for that part of your story. There you’ll see everything you need to get the best answer for your question. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you’ll also see who voted and what option they chose. That way, you’ll be able to compare votes from the friends and followers whose opinions you trust most. And just like your story, your poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours.





 You’ll also see two new tools to help make your stories even more creative: a color picker for text and brushes and an alignment tool for text and stickers. When you choose a color for your text or drawing tool, you’ll see a new eyedropper icon at the far left. Use it to select any color from your photo or video and apply it to your text or drawing tool.

 Also, on iOS, when you position text or a sticker on your photo or video, new blue lines will appear to help you center it or avoid placing it anywhere that might get covered up when someone watches your story. And when you rotate text or a sticker, new guides will also help you snap your sticker back to horizontal.
