Google introduces Interactive Polls for Google+

There was some excitement yesterday, as newly installed Google+ head, Dave Besbris announced on Google+ yesterday that he was ‘Looking forward to tomorrow.’ before adding ‘This should be fun. :)’. We now know what he was excited about, with Google announcing a new Poll system for Google+.

The polling service is a result of their purchase of Polar announced last month, which Google said they would shut down by 2015. But never fear because taking polls on Google+ isn’t going anywhere. You can now insert polls into your Google+ stream on the web, with Android support rolling out over the next few days, with iOS support coming soon. New polls allow you to put up to five options into a poll and have users participate.

Not a bad feature for personal use, but brands such as Loreal and The Hunger Games already jumping onto the Poll wagon. Try out a few yourself and see what you think.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
