Perfectionists, Instagram Stories' Latest Creative Update Is For You

You Can Now Have Your Instagram Friends Make All Your Life Decisions For You Perfectionists, Instagram Stories' Latest Creative Update Is For You
Delores Daniels | 04 October, 2017, 00:30

Instagram today has rolled out a new feature that allows users to add polls to stories along with a new text/brush color picker and alignment tool. This app adds sparkles to your Instagrams. The new tool means you'll be able to attach two-option queries to your Stories.

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. After you've taken a photo or video for your story, select the "poll" sticker and place it anywhere you'd like - you can write out your own question and even customize the poll choices. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you'll also see who voted and what option they chose. And just like your story, your poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours.

The new features are to "help make your stories even more creative", said the post from Instagram.

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. Then you can type away in that perfectly matching color. A new eyedropper icon can be found on the far left when choosing a color for text or the drawing tool.

On iOS devices, when you move some text or stickers around on your photo or video, you'll see a blue line appear.

To check out poll results, simply swipe up when viewing the story, and you'll see who voted and what they thought. You can make sure your sticker is aligned correctly and also ensure that you aren't covering up an important part of your story.

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