Can’t decide between which outfit to wear, or where to have for lunch? You can now let your friends decide for you with Instagram’s latest update for Instagram Stories. The social network recently introduced new poll stickers on Instagram Stories, allowing friends and followers to vote between two options.
The next time you post an Instagram Story, just pick the poll sticker and place it anywhere you like. Set your own question and poll choices, and let your friends vote away and see real time results. Once someone places a vote, they will see which choice is leading at any given moment. The number will be updated when they watch your story again.
You can monitor your poll results by swiping up to open the viewers list for that part of your story. You will get to see a detailed report of the votes like who voted and what option they picked. Just like any other story on Instagram, the poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours.
On top of a new poll sticker, this latest update also brings two new tools to “help make your stories even more creative”. The tools include a colour picker for text and brushes, and an alignment tool for text and stickers. Tap on the new eyedropper icon at the far left, and use it to select any colour from your photo or video. As for iOS users, you will see new blue lines when you position a text or sticker on your post. The guides will help you center it, or avoid placing it on places that might get covered up; it also helps you snap your sticker back to horizontal when you rotate text or a sticker.
