Instagram's new Stories sticker is all about polls

Instagram Stories now let you poll your friends

The new features are to "help make your stories even more creative", said the post from Instagram. Now you can add a poll to your Instagram Stories through a sticker.

"Whether you're trying to plan tomorrow's outfit, choosing which class to take or figuring out where to go for dinner, now it's easy to share a two-option poll right in your story", Instagram explains in a blog posting.

Viewers can see poll results unfold in real time and the person who posted the poll can see a breakdown of who voted for which option.

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.

The temporal nature of Instagram Stories (they're only viewable for 24 hours) makes pairing them with polls a smart idea. Instagram is a free download from the App Store. A great addition to Instagram Stories or just another tactic to get us users addicted to social media?

Matos further stated that the India U-17s, on their day, could put the best of teams under pressure and fight for a win. Meanwhile, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli wished the players good luck for the U-17 World Cup.

These updates have been rolled out today as part of Instagram version 17. Also added, though for iOS users alone, is an alignment tool that makes it easy to center both text and stickers on your pictures. Then you can type away in that perfectly matching color. Select the tool (next to the color selection area) and the drawing tool will fill in the color to match whatever area of your photo you select.

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

Instagram explains, "After you've shared your poll, your friends and followers can immediately start voting and see real-time results".

Furthermore, the app now shows you if text or stickers can be viewed well by a third party. These lines help you drop the text or stickers in ideal spots on stories.
