  • You Can Now Have Your Instagram Friends Make All Your Life Decisions For You

Instagram has brought in a feature for its Stories which will most likely be widely used within a week of its implementation.

Whether you're trying to plan tomorrow's outfit, choosing which class to take or figuring out where to go for dinner, now it's easy to share a two-option poll right in your story. Once you publish, anyone who views your story will be able to vote and see the real-time results. 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. The app got an update Tuesday the details of which Instagram revealed in a blog post.

The temporal nature of Instagram Stories (they're only viewable for 24 hours) makes pairing them with polls a smart idea.

You'll also see two new tools to help make your stories even more creative: a color picker for text and brushes and an alignment tool for text and stickers.

These updates have been rolled out today as part of Instagram version 17.

Adding a poll sticker is as easy as adding any of the plethora of stickers that are available on Instagram. Move the droplet around to select a color in the photo that you want to apply to your paintbrush or text. A new eyedropper icon can be found on the far left when choosing a color for text or the drawing tool. There you'll find information on taking photos, videos and Boomerangs as well as editing them and adding text, drawings or stickers. These lines help you drop the text or stickers in ideal spots on stories.
