Perfectionists, Instagram Stories' Latest Creative Update Is For You
Also rolling out today are two new creative tools. Instagram users can now create polls in their Instagram Stories, allowing fellow users to vote between two choices, which encourages better interactivity on Instagram.
It works like this: Take a photo or video through Instagram Stories and swipe up to reveal the sticker drawer, then select the "poll" sticker and place it wherever you want. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you'll also see who voted and what option they chose.
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. Plus, Instagram now makes it easy to center and level stickers and text.
The temporal nature of Instagram Stories (they're only viewable for 24 hours) makes pairing them with polls a smart idea.

National Hockey League broadcaster Dave Strader dies at 62 Louis Blues, but the majority of his work took place with the first team that he worked for, the Adirondack Red Wings (AHL). The team is also working with the ECHL to get to wear stickers on the back of its helmets to honor him for the full season.
Instagram Stories now lets you write your questions and defaults the answers to Yes or No, even though you can edit those answers to whatever you want.
These updates have been rolled out today as part of Instagram version 17. Along the bottom of the screen, to the left of the spectrum of colors you're used to seeing, you'll see a new eyedropper icon. First, there is a new color picker for text and brushes. You, on the other hand, can view the results by opening up the viewers' list for the Story.
Also, on iOS, when you position text or a sticker on your photo or video, new blue lines will appear to help you center it or avoid placing it anywhere that might get covered up when someone watches your story.
All the latest features are available now on Instagram's iPhone and Android apps.
