Google is rolling out a new Google+ feature that allows users to add a poll to posts on the social network.

It’ll first be rolling out for Android devices and on the Web “over the next few days”, before being followed closely on iOS. Once live, users should see the option to insert a poll in the post composition window and will be able to create a question with up to five choices. Images will be allowed too, Google said
