Most likely a nod to Google’s recent investment in Polar, Google+ members can now create interactive polls for their friends and followers on the company’s social network. Polls are limited to five choices and can be decorated with photos to make them unique and appealing. Topics can be just about anything you can dream up, but we’re expecting to see a lot about food, sports, pop culture and of course technology.

To create a new poll, select the “Poll” icon (if available) when composing a Google+ post. If you don’t see the new icon yet, give it some time. Polls will available for web and Android users in the next few days, with iOS support scheduled to come soon after.
