Instagram's New Feature Lets You Poll Your Followers

You Can Now Have Your Instagram Friends Make All Your Life Decisions For You

Instagram is following suit with its own polling feature within Stories.

The app added a new type of interactive sticker that allows users to add polls to their Stories, as well as new "color picker" and alignment tools.

The new "poll" stickers allow users to add two-option queries to their Stories. Friends and followers who see the poll in Stories will be able to tap on a choice to vote. "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.

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. All polls and results disappear after 24 hours, just like everything else posted to Stories. The updates rolled out Tuesday to all users running version 16.0 or higher of Instagram. Move the droplet around to select a color in the photo that you want to apply to your paintbrush or text.




One of the more subtle features Instagram added to the app Tuesday is the ability to color match any text or brush drawing you add to a photo or video with any item in that photo or video.

The alignment tool helps you visualize how stickers and text are positioned in your Story. The lines will also help you align your stockers horizontal and upright so that viewers can easily see them.

Instagram has introduced quite a few stickers for their Stories feature recently, but their latest update adds some valuable functionality as well.

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