WhatsApp rolls out chat polls for Android and iOS users

Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp has rolled out the Polls feature for both Android and iPhone users. The feature was spotted in the Beta Version back in April but now it has officially rolled out for everyone.

The WhatsApp Polls feature allows you to create a poll with up to 12 options as answers. Anyone can vote for any options that are available as answers, which means a person can vote for one or all options.

At the bottom of the poll, there is also an option to view votes. WhatsApp also displays the number of votes cast next to a response.

The feature was reported to work in groups previously but it now also works in personal or individual chats. WhatsApp claims that the polls feature will be protected by end-to-end encryption as the other chats.
