Instagram has introduced an interactive poll sticker in its Stories that lets the users ask a question to viewers and see results as they vote.
From Instagram’s blog post:
“Today we’re introducing an interactive poll sticker in Instagram Stories that lets you ask a question and see results from your friends and followers as they vote.”
“Whether you’re trying to plan tomorrow’s outfit, choosing which class to take or figuring out where to go for dinner, now it’s easy to share a two-option poll right in your story. 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.”
To see results, users can swipe up to open the viewers list for that part of the story. Not only users will be able to see how many votes each option received, but they’ll also see who voted and what option they chose.
It’s worth noting that the Instagram’s new feature pretty much resembles ‘Polly’ – a Snapchat integration for polling, which is a third-party app that connects to the platform and allows users to add multiple-choice polls in Stories.
The updates are available for Instagram version 17 and above in Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
