Introducing Polls in Instagram Stories

Yu Gi Oh characters

This app adds sparkles to your Instagrams. Instagram is following suit with its own polling feature within Stories. You can find the updates in the App Store or Google Play. Also added, though for iOS users alone, is an alignment tool that makes it easy to center both text and stickers on your pictures. 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. The Polls feature on Instagram Stories is only limited to a two option poll for now, but we suppose that is simplicity at its best.

These updates have been rolled out today as part of Instagram version 17.

Simply drag and drop the tool over the various colors in the photo or video to find the ideal one. The eyedropper tool will allow you to take colors to use on text and brushes. You can change this color if you end up not liking the one you choose, simply drag the dropped again and select another color until you find the ideal one. Depending on what you're moving around the photo and where, the line will either be horizontal or vertical.

The alignment tool helps you visualize how stickers and text are positioned in your Story.




After you've already taken a photo or video for your story, simply select the "poll" sticker, write out your own question, and customize poll answers.

In a blog post today, Instagram shared details about the new "interactive poll sticker" for stories.

Apart from your friends merely viewing, commenting and replying to your Instagram Stories, they can also vote for a poll that you create. This feature was available Tuesday for users on iOS devices but not those on Android devices.

Second, there is a fresh alignment tool for text and stickers.
