Snapchat allows the user to embed a link to the Snap which was first leveraged by the Sarahah app. Sarahah allows the user to send an anonymous message to others, but apps face cyberbullying issues. Polly has a different mechanism as it let the users give their poll on the asked question.

Polly allows the user to create any question with multiple choice answers which are defined by them. This prevents the users from any risk of cyberbullying as what they receive in return is a vote. The question with choices to answer is compelling the teens to hold on the poll and give their opinion.

According to the app, the app has successful acquiring 20 million users with 100 million answers last month. After you write an interesting question with the relevant suggestion, such as “Who am i to you”, “Am i insane” app creates a link. Grab the web link and create a Snap by attaching the link to the Snap, finally publish it. Your Snap containing the Polly poll link will be visible to your Snapchat audience and anyone can open it by swiping up without logging into the app.

Co-Founders of the app Ranidu Lankage said, “ We enjoyed polls. We’d seen them on Twitter and other apps, and we thought we'd’ be able to bring them to a new platform.”

Polly app grabbed 13th position among the top social apps in the U.S. this week, beating the new sensation Houseparty app. However, the app needs to compete with Sarahah and recently launched TBH in order to be successful at larger scale in the anonymity genre. The dependency of the Polly Poll on Snapchat is an all-time risk as  Snapchat could decide to remove its link anytime.
