Instagram's New Feature Lets You Poll Your Followers

Instagram is also adding two new tools to enhance Story creation.

Today we're introducing an interactive poll sticker in Instagram Stories that lets you ask a question and see results from your friends and followers as they vote. If you create a poll, you'll be able to see how many votes each option received, along with the choice each voter made. Just like Stories, the poll and its results will disappear automatically after 24 hours. Followers can immediately start voting and you'll be able to see results in real-time. The app got an update Tuesday the details of which Instagram revealed in a blog post.

It's all about Stories; the feature has been hitting all the right chords since it was launched by Instagram in 2016.

The Thunder was built on the success of the draft and rebuilt on Sam Presti engineering trades to surround Westbrook with talent. After the deal was on the table for some time, Westbrook finally chose to put pen to paper and commit to Oklahoma City longterm.

Included in the newest Instagram update are also two new tools: a "color picker" for text and brushes, and an alignment tool for text and stickers. 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.

It can be used to select any color from the photo or video and to apply it to the text or drawing tool. iOS users will find that when they position text or a sticker on their photo or video, new blue lines will pop up to help them center it. You can make sure your sticker is aligned correctly and also ensure that you aren't covering up an important part of your story. 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).

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