Even though they were not gone for good but their absence prompted a meaningful enough reaction that Facebook has today announced that polls are back on Messenger again in play within your chat streams.
This is not the first time Facebook Messenger polls are launched, on the contrary, they were first launched back in 2016. However, recently, they were removed as a part of Facebook’s “Lightspeed” revamp of the Facebook Messenger App, which seeks to declutter presentation besides streamlining its operations.
However, for now, Messenger polls have returned, not just that but also they come with a new and fresh look along with an improved response.
In light of that Facebook mentioned “Power users of the previous version of Polls will note that we’ve refreshed the look and feel with new colors and an updated button to vote. We’ve also added Polls to the Messenger Desktop app, available for both Mac and Windows users.”

It is as easy as creating the polls, make sure you do the following:
