Telegram is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world currently. There are so many different features that this app offers to the clients such as polling. Telegram poll is a useful object that you can use it for both channels and groups.
By creating a poll on Telegram, you will be able to get more information from people in your group chats or your channel subscribers. Polls are mostly used in group chats when people disagree on a certain topic and they need to decide which answer is the best by voting.
First we discuss creating a poll on the latest version of the app and then we proceed with previous versions.
Follow these steps on your up-to-date Telegram app.
Also you have an option of closing your poll when you think you have got enough answers. Tap and hold the message with the poll, then tap Stop Poll in the new menu. You will also see that you can retract your vote, forward the poll, or pin it.
Pinning the poll makes it visible and accessible for all group members, whilst forwarding can help you increase your reach if you need more votes.
But before the latest updates, creating a poll required a bit more work, even though it was not too much complicated. You still needed to address some of the Telegram bots, such as Pollbot.
There are also @vote and @like bots responsible for creating poll and writing post with an option of liking them.
The only difference here is that you cannot share this poll with your friends from other social networks by using @vote bot because it doesn’t generate a link.
You can use @QuAnBot for using fully function poll. It has some advantages such as following options.
Pollers can offer their answer to the poll’s author. If the author approves the suggest, one more answer will be added to the list.
The poll’s author can request a user’s phone number before joining a poll.
Pollers can choose multiple answers, the number of answers can be only one or many depending on the author.
You can also add photos, videos and voice messages here.
In the setting, you can edit your Poll by these options: Change votes, delete votes, multi-select option, etc.
There are also other bots such as @EasyVote with the same usage and the instruction is nearly similar.
