How to Make a Poll on Instagram with More Than 2 Options

Sometimes you may want to add more than two answers to your poll. However, that feature is only available to selected Instagram users. Instagram has allowed users in selected regions to add up to four possible answers to their poll sticker.

The feature to add more than two responses to the poll sticker is in the testing phase and unavailable to most Instagram users. But you can use the feature if you are one of the chosen few.

You will see “Add another option…” on the poll sticker if the feature of adding more than two responses is available to you. Tap the option to add up to four answers to your Instagram poll.

We have listed two things you can do to increase your odds of getting the new poll sticker feature.

  1. Update your Instagram app: Using an up-to-date app will make it more likely for you to get new features.
  2. Use other accounts: If you have more than one Instagram account, switching accounts may help you get the new poll sticker feature.
