Seeking opinion or choice from participants in a group conversation conducted via a messaging application is a common user activity. Currently, a participant poses a question, views responses from other participants, and provides results, e.g., the group preference for a particular option. This disclosure applies machine learning to chat conversations. With user permission, chat conversation is analyzed to detect a question and provide a poll automatically. The poll can be provided as explicit UI that enables participants to indicate a selection. Alternatively, responses from participants, e.g., using text, emoji, etc. can be analyzed. Results of the poll are automatically tallied and displayed with the group conversation.
