Instagram's new Polls feature will require more active participation

In a blog post today, Instagram shared details about the new "interactive poll sticker" for stories. Instagram users can now create polls in their Instagram Stories, allowing fellow users to vote between two choices, which encourages better interactivity on Instagram.

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.

The new "poll" stickers allow users to add two-option queries to their Stories. Take your photo or video, then tap anywhere onscreen to write something or select the drawing icon on the upper toolbar. They will see the overall results so far after that. And just like your story, your poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours. Instagram is a free download from the App Store.

To get the newest updates to the app make sure you're using the latest version of Instagram.

Last August, Instagram Stories was born, and over the a year ago what may have at first seemed like a cheesy Snapchat clone has grown up to become an incredibly popular feature with its own weird quirks.

What's more, Instagram also introduced today a color picker tool similar to the eyedropper in Photoshop which lets users select a color from their images to use on text and brushes, as well as an alignment tool that makes it easier to see if stickers and text are properly centered. The app will also show you if text or stickers will be obscured when someone views your story (if they go to type a reply, for example). And when you rotate text or a sticker, new guides will also help you snap your sticker back to horizontal. Moving a sticker or bit of text now brings up blue lines meant to help center the elements.
