Polls are back on Facebook Messenger with a new refreshed look, allowing people in Messenger group chats to ask friends for their opinions.
Polls have always been an exciting feature on social media. After all, isn’t polling our friends on matters ranging from trivial to life-changing, one of the purposes of social media itself?
Well, Facebook must have thought they were important enough, because Polls are (finally) back on Messenger, a year after they quietly disappeared. For obvious reasons, though, Polls are only available in Group chats. Making a poll when chatting with one friend, doesn’t really make sense, does it?

To create a poll, tap on the plus sign (+) in the group chat window and select “Polls.” Add your question and possible answers and then tap “Create Poll,” and voilà!
Users who want to participate in the poll can tap anywhere on it to bring up the details, choose their answer, and submit.
Polls are available on Facebook Messenger across Android, desktop, iOS, and the web.
Facebook said in a blog post, “Power users of the previous version of Polls will note that we’ve refreshed the look and feel with new colors and an updated button to vote. We’ve also added Polls to the Messenger Desktop app, available for both Mac and Windows users.”
