Instagram Stories has today received a new interactive poll stickers feature, which allows you to ask a question and see results from your followers as they vote. So whether you’re choosing which class to take or figuring out where to go for dinner, or simply trying to plan tomorrow’s outfit, it’s now easier than ever to share a two-option poll right in your Instagram story.
All you need to do after selecting a photo or video for your story is to pick the “poll” sticker and place it anywhere you’d like. You can then write out your own question or customize the poll choices. As soon as you’ve shared the poll, your friends and followers can not only start voting immediately, but also see real-time poll results.
“Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment. And if they watch your story again later, they’ll see the latest results. To see your own poll results, swipe up to open the viewers list for that part of your story. There you’ll see everything you need to get the best answer for your question. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you’ll also see who voted and what option they chose.”
The feature also lets you compare votes from the friends and followers whose opinions you trust most. Similar to any regular Instagram story, your poll and its results will also disappear after 24 hours.
