Instagram Stories mimics Polly with new polls

Instagram Stories mimics Polly with new polls

Instagram Stories now lets you write your questions and defaults the answers to Yes or No, even though you can edit those answers to whatever you want. Now you can add a poll to your Instagram Stories through a sticker.

You'll soon be able to poll all of your friends on social media, all thanks to Instagram's newest interactive feature.

To add the polling sticker, simply drag and drop it onto your image 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", Instagram said in a blog post. Once this has been done, you will be presented with the option of customizing the question choices. They will also be able to view which of their friends have voted for either option in the poll. They will get to see the total vote numbers, people who voted, and what they voted for. Viewers can vote by tapping on one of the options, as well as see the overall results unfolding in real time.

Giving time to the NIA to respond to Jahan's application, the Supreme Court fixed October 9 for hearing the matter. Jahan has in turn pleaded with the Supreme Court to cancel the NIA probe.

The ephemeral image sharing app also added an eyedropper tool, The Verge reports.

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. Followers can immediately start voting and you'll be able to see results in real-time. Along the bottom of the screen, to the left of the spectrum of colors you're used to seeing, you'll see a new eyedropper icon.

Furthermore, the app now shows you if text or stickers can be viewed well by a third party. You can make sure your sticker is aligned correctly and also ensure that you aren't covering up an important part of your story.
