Once upon a time (until 2016), people could create polls on Messenger and ask different questions by providing multiple options to choose from. But, they removed this feature, because it used to slow down the loading process, but people have voted for polls to come back again!
Polls are a smart way to gather information by creating them on different groups you are part of. Their display is new and is supported on both Desktop and mobiles.
Polls options will be available only to groups with more than two participators.
As Facebook explains, this is how it works:
Being part of a Messenger group gives you the possibility and flexibility to share and receive real-time information. It is very important for a smooth team management as well and that’s why Polls are a smart way to use when you want to vote for a new feature, product, sale, news, etc.
We have seen and used them on different social platforms like Facebook (and Stories), Instagram Stories, Twitter, etc. Now we can create private polls and that ought to be very helpful and effective.
