The WhatsApp messaging application surprised its users with a new feature that had been acclaimed for a long time: surveys, a tool that allows simple inquiries in individual or group chats.
“Simple, fun and private” is the slogan used by the application to present these surveys on social networks, which are being progressively activated on the mobile devices of its Internet users.
What should you know about WhatsApp surveys?
According to La Nación, this tool, recently launched to the public, on November 16, is only enabled for phones that have the most up-to-date version of WhatsApp and allows surveys of up to 12 specific answers, but what else do you need to know?

Create the queries
Surveys are an intuitive option within the messaging platform, you just have to press the “Attach” icon, then select “Survey” and you will be able to write your question and its possible ways of responding.
The use of emojis is allowed in all texts, you can change their position and you don’t have to worry about repeating the same answers, since the platform is in charge of notifying you so that you can make the respective corrections.

Answer the surveys
Users can choose more than one answer if necessary, especially if they need to answer questions like “What days of the week will you be free?”
You also need to be clear that these surveys are not anonymous, so in group chats all members will be able to know what options you chose, as published by ProAndroid.
Other things you should know
● The surveys will show a green progress bar and a percentage to know which answers have the highest acceptance.
● In ‘See votes’ you can find out in detail the options that each person chose and at what time.
● These queries do not have an expiration date, so they can be answered at any time.
● Although you can delete the polls, they are completely private within the chat and cannot be forwarded.
