Did you know that you can create a poll on Telegram without leaving the app? Polls are one of the most engaging and interactive ways to get feedback from a Telegram channel or chat group members. Members can use them to publicly express their opinions without saying anything controversial or backing up their positions with facts. It's a safe and anonymous way to engage in debate and express your point of view.


In this entry, we'll show you how to create a Telegram poll on a range of computers and mobile devices.


How to create a poll in Telegram on a PC

The Telegram application for PC has a very user-friendly and intuitive interface. It offers many features such as group chats, stickers, voice messages and video calls. And since no ads are shown on the app, you don't have to worry about being bombarded with irrelevant content every time you open the app.

One of the best things about the Telegram desktop app is that you can create a poll and get responses from other users in minutes.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Launch Telegram on your PC.
  2. Go to the channel or interest group.
  3. Once you have opened the group or channel, click on the ellipsis (three vertical dots) in the upper right corner of your screen.
  4. Select "Create Poll" from the resulting drop-down menu.
  5. At this point you will be provided with a text box where you can enter your question.
  6. Click the text box under "Poll Options" and enter the first option. To enter multiple options, click “Add Option” and then enter it.
  7. When your two Q&A options are ready to go live, click "Create" in the top right corner.

After following these steps, your survey will be published immediately.



When running Telegram on a PC, you can also create a poll using PollBot. But what is it ?

PollBot is an automated account that runs through a script created by a third-party Telegram developer. The bot helps Telegram users create poll questions and conduct polls. It's a useful way to quickly get high-quality data from your Telegram contacts, as it provides analytics tools immediately after the survey is completed.

Running a poll via PollBot involves three main steps:

  1. Adding the bot to your Telegram account.
  2. Adding the bot to the channel or Telegram group of your choice.
  3. Survey creation.

Now let's go through each step in detail:

(a) Adding the Bot to your Telegram account

Here's how to add PollBot to your Telegram account:

  1. Open the Telegram desktop app and click the magnifying glass icon in the upper right corner.
  2. Type “PollBot” and press “Go”. This should reveal a list of apps with PollBot at the top.
  3. Click on the PollBot app.
  4. Click "Start" to activate the bot.

(b) Adding the Bot to the Telegram group or channel of interest

To add PollBot to a group or channel:

  1. Open PollBot.
  2. Click on the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
  3. Select "Add to group". At this point, you should see a list of all eligible groups or channels.
  4. To add PollBot to a given group, click on its name, then select “OK”.

You can now use PollBot to create a poll in the selected group or channel.



(c) Creation of the survey

To create a poll in the channel or group you selected:

  1. Open the channel.
  2. Enter the following in the text bar: /[email protected]
  3. PollBot will guide you through the process of setting up the question and up to 10 options.
  4. When your two Q&A options are ready to go live, type “/done” to complete the process.

The bot will now prompt users to complete the survey.
