Telegram provides a voting mechanism that allows you to easily conduct polls in groups, channels, and individual conversations in a straightforward manner.
Although the feature is not available on WhatsApp, it may be accessed using the @Vote bot, which allows users to create a main question and answer options directly from the chat window.
Using only unique votes made by those who have Telegram accounts, the virtual robot counts the results and displays them in real time.
Polls in Telegram may only be conducted in channels and group chats, not in individual conversations.
Polls can be particularly useful on a channel because they allow viewers to express their opinions. Owners of YouTube channels have the chance to learn more about their subscribers by running polls on their channel.
This includes learning about the subscribers’ interests, age, and the direction in which the majority view prevails on a certain issue.
Additionally, through surveys, the channel owner can collect feedback on the overall quality of the information that is provided. Following the receipt of input from subscribers via polls, the channel owner gains a greater understanding of his or her audience and the direction in which to grow the channel.
Polls can be created in group chat as well as in individual chat.In this situation, polls can serve as a tool for not only conducting a sociological study but also mediating conflicts between members of a group.
Additionally, the poll function is a fantastic tool for organizing contests and quizzes on your website. Because polls allow you to organize a vote among subscribers (or participants) and determine the winner of a competition, they are quite useful.
The “pin” button should be pressed while in the discourse mode of channels or chats.
“Poll” should be selected.
Set the survey’s title and options by typing them in the appropriate fields.

Various Functions and Polling Rules
Finally, we will discuss the actions that the administrator and participants can take in response to polls, as well as what the quiz mode is all about.
First and foremost, you should be aware that only administrators have the ability to create and delete polls in channels and group chats. Members can make polls in group chats, however, if the administrator has enabled this feature in the group settings.
How to administer a Telegram channel is covered in greater detail in our page on “Telegram channels“.
We’d also like to remind you that it is not possible to create a poll in private conversations.
Polls can be shared by any Telegram user in private chats as well as in other groups and channels. At the same time, any user can vote in a poll; that is, it is not essential to be a member of a group or subscribe to the channel where the poll was made in order to participate in a poll.
Every Telegram user will be able to see the results of the poll. The “Anonymous voting” option in the poll settings is not selected by default, which means that any person that votes can see who and how they voted.
When you tap (or right-click) on a poll message, a context menu will appear on the right side.
The option to “Stop polling” can be found in this menu and selected by the administrator. As a result, the poll will no longer be legitimate, and participants and subscribers will no longer be able to cast their votes in the poll.
The “Pin” option allows the administrator to pin the poll message to the top of the chat window or channel, allowing subscribers to access the poll in a quick and easy manner from anywhere in the chat room.
The “Cancel Voice” option allows both the survey administrator and survey participants to cancel their votes, allowing them to re-vote if they so choose in the future.
To forward the poll to someone in a private conversation or a friendly channel, simply select “Forward” from the drop-down menu.
The “Delete” option, on the other hand, permits the administrator to permanently remove the poll from the system.
We indicated before that polls can be used to build competitive quizzes. This is true. The quiz mode is set up in the following way:
First, under the poll settings menu, you must select the “Quiz Mode” option by checking the box next to it.
Following that, you ask a question and provide several possible answers. Circles will appear in the opposite direction to the solution choices. You must click on the circle that is directly opposite the correct answer.
It is possible to specify the text that will be displayed when an incorrect response is selected by using the explanation tab of the editor. Then you can click on the “Create” button.
When a user selects the correct answer in the poll-quiz that has been published, special effects such as confetti and a checkmark will appear opposite the selected answer.
The user will notice a cross next to the selected option and a notification at the top of the screen if this is the case.
The poll quiz mode is a fantastic approach to keep members entertained while also encouraging them to participate in a channel or group. After all, in exchange for a price, subscribers will assist in the promotion of the channel, such as by spreading the news about it through word of mouth.
