How to Use Instagram LIVE
Instagram has joined the list of Social media platforms with ‘Live Streaming’ feature. Instagram users can broadcast LIVE videos using the Instagram App in their smart phones.  The users when creating a Story, on swiping will see a new button “Live” which is used for Live streaming. Once a user starts Live streaming, a notification will be sent to all followers who can watch the Live video and post comments. The broadcaster can deactivate the comment feature if they want to block comments. The Live video streaming feature is available in version 10.0 and above
The Live streaming feature in Instagram is different from Facebook. The Instagram Live streaming will not allow anyone to save the video and the video feed will disappear at the end of the Live stream. The instagram’s battle with Snapchat  is very clear and of late Instagram has added many new features to entertain its subscribers which may attract more users.
