Plus, Instagram now makes it easy to center and level stickers and text.

Instagram is looking to make its Stories feature more interactive so it has announced the launch of a new feature that will make users interact more with them. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you'll also see who voted and what option they chose. The Polls feature on Instagram Stories is only limited to a two option poll for now, but we suppose that is simplicity at its best. Instagram is a free download from the App Store. Simply drag and drop it in the story and the app will present options to customize the question and choices. And just like your story, your poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours.

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.

Instagram has added new tools to make Stories more creative. 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.

The conference does matter when it comes to the team's captain, who will be the highest vote-getter from the East and West. Additionally, the coaches will select seven reserves for their respective teams.


These updates have been rolled out today as part of Instagram version 17. The eyedropper tool will allow you to take colors to use on text and brushes.

On iOS devices, when you move some text or stickers around on your photo or video, you'll see a blue line appear. There you'll find information on taking photos, videos and Boomerangs as well as editing them and adding text, drawings or stickers.

Users can see the results of their polls by going to the viewers list for that particular image or video in their story. This feature was available Tuesday for users on iOS devices but not those on Android devices.
