 StrawCast is a neat feature that lets you share your polls anonymously over the internet. When you share polls via Strawcast polls will be delivered to all those who have Straw app installed and will be Automatically posted on to Twitter handle @Strawcast. And if you are answering the poll you will be answering anonymously too. Plus whats more awesome is that you can see the poll results in real time from the straw app.
 In a blog post from straw they explained Straw cast like this
StrawCast™ allows you to send a poll beyond your own social networks to the entire Straw universe - and the entire internet - and get troll-free opinions in real-time.  You can also see, vote on, and favorite publicly broadcast polls from all over the world. 

In addition to Strawcast there are a bunch of interesting features included in this update. Here is a list of few.

  • An all-new sign-in/sign-up process.  You can still log in to Straw with your favorite social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Microsoft Account, but now, if you’d prefer, you can create a personalized, password protected Straw account.
  • A more beautiful, easier to use interface.  We heard loud and clear that you love Straw because it’s simple and easy to use…so we made it even easier and simpler.  The new interface is based entirely on modern design principles and will look great on your iOS, Android or Windows Phone device.
  • Private results.  You now have the option to make your poll results private.  Anyone can vote, but they won’t see results immediately afterwards as they do with a public poll. This is great if you’re asking a sensitive question.
  • Easier poll link copying.  Just swipe left on any in progress or completed poll and you’ll see a “copy poll link” option.
  • Embed codes are here! When you post a new poll, you now have the option of generating custom embed code, in addition to sharing the poll via StrawCast, SMS, or your social networks.  Drop the embed code into a blog post or website so your readers and viewers can vote, straight from the web.
  • Edit running polls in real-time.  You asked, we listened!  You can now change poll durations and make edits to content and copy in real time, without having to close and re-post your poll.
