Do angels have free will? How is it different from humans free will?

Angels have free will too but it is different from humans’ free will. The archangel Gabriel (peace be upon him) carries out the Divine order given to him with the free will. He also notifies the angels of a Divine order with that free will he has. He does not have the free will to act against the order he gets and that is what makes him different from humans.Angels have free will too but it is different from humans free will.

In addition, varying in accordance with their levels, angels can be at different places at the same time and carry out tasks simultaneously. Their will is not absolute but limited. They can act within certain limits.
By doing those, they exhibit a manifestation of the Divine will of God.

Conscious beings like angels can do nothing other than a sort of voluntary duty in accordance with their natures and active worship which is called ‘acquisition,’ and is insignificant and not creative. (The Rays)

Satan is from the jinn and they have also free-will like human beings. Human beings have freedom to commit either goodness or badness and just like this, the Satan selected the evilness and continued on this way.
