Instagram now allows users to send polls to others through direct messages on its platform.
The new feature works similarly to adding the poll sticker to stories, but users will be able to select the users who receive the story.
This creates a group chat in which invited participants can vote and view the poll results in real time.
You’ll recall that Instagram rolled out its poll sticker sometimes in October 2017 and we’ve seen amazing features launched such emoji slider, Instagram tv, ask a question and lots more to enhance its Stories tool.
Sending polls via direct message is a welcome development and it’s available for Android and iOS devices. Update your app to choose who you want poll with.
Starting today, you can send a poll privately in Direct. Update your app to choose who you want to poll – whether it’s everyone in a big group thread or just your very best friend. Update your app now to try it! pic.twitter.com/Lfr6pwPDzI
