Have you ever thought of creating a poll on Snapchat? If yes, then after reading this guide you will be able to do so. Polls are a great way to get feedback or opinion of others on something. You can get views of your friends for your new shoes or about anything you can imagine. And what better place than Snapchat to do so where most of the millennials are active. So, here’s how to make a poll on Snapchat using Android or iOS device. The poll is added to snap which can then be posted to the Snapchat story or sent privately as chats.
In case you use Instagram then you can add polls to Stories using the new sticker introduced recently. For Snapchat follow the steps below.
Earlier, we used the Polly app to make a vote on Snapchat. However, currently, the service is inactive so it is moved to the 2nd method in the article. We will update the article when Polly is up and running again. Until then, you can use the online tool mentioned in the first method which is a perfect Polly alternative to create polls for Snapchat in 2018.
Method 1: PollsGo
1. Visit PollsGo website from your smartphone browser.
2. Type a name for your Poll and tap on Get Started.
3. Next, you need to add a question to the poll. Tap on Add questions to Your Poll to do so.
4. On the next screen, you will be able to find already added questions in personal and group sections. If you don’t find a question you are looking for then tap on Add your own question.
5. Now, type the desired question and options for the same. By default, you will see only 2 options but you can use the Add an option button to add more choices. There’s also a possibility of adding multiple questions for a single poll.
After you’re satisfied, tap on Done adding questions.
6. With this, your poll is created and now the only thing is left is sharing it on Snapchat. To share, Copy link of the poll and paste it in your snap attachment, details of which are shared in the second method if you are new to adding links to snaps.
Finally, make sure to add GIF or text to ask people to swipe up and participate in the poll.
The voting is anonymous and you can view the results of your poll by going to PollsGo site from the same browser you used to create the poll. Select View results of polls created by you under Your Polls section. Then select View Results for that particular poll.

Play Storeor App Store.
I have used the steps and screenshots from iPhone but the process remains the same for Android.

- Next, go to the Snapchat app directly by tapping on the Snapchat icon.
- Capture a snap or upload one from Gallery or Camera roll as usual.
- Use the paperclip icon to add a link to the Snap. On the next step, paste the poll link copied earlier and tap on Attach to Snap. Add text or make any other edits to the photo/video if desired.
- Finally, post the story using the right arrow icon followed by selecting My Story and tapping right arrow yet again.
With this, users can take the survey you posted by swiping up on your snap. You can mention it as text on your photo/video so that no one misses out on taking it.
