How to create polls on WhatsApp?

WhatsApp has recently launched a new create poll feature for its Android and iOS users. You can now create a poll in WhatsApp, which is great news for group chats and keen organizers. Previously, if you wanted to gauge the opinion of everyone else on a group chat, you had a couple of options. One was to create a poll using an external website and link to it it in the chat. The second, more informal way was to send your poll answers as messages and ask people to react to each one, counting the reactions. Neither option was perfect. Well, WhatsApp have clearly responded to user demand, as you can now create polls natively within WhatsApp chats.


The Meta-owned instant-messaging app now allows users to create polls in groups as well as in personal chats. It is only available on for mobile version and is expected to come for WhatsApp for Web version soon. Let's take a quick look on how to use the new Poll feature on WhatsApp.
