Instagram LIVE Update!

Instagram now has a LIVE streaming feature. Since its owned by Facebook, you can continue to expect these cool features. When initially launched, Instagram LIVE videos disappeared as soon as the LIVE stream ended. Well, there’s good news!

Instagram is now giving you the option to post it to Instagram Stories (the top bar of circle pics) for 24 hours. You’ll see that option after you hit the end live button.Ā When looking at your Instagram Stories, you’ll know it’s a live video posted when you see the play button/arrow.

There are over 200 million daily users of Instagram stories, so if you have not been using that feature, you’re missing out on a prime opportunity to connect with your followers.
