It was announced recently, and nobody was really surprised, but Instagram Live is here. And as of Monday, you can use Instagram to stream live.
The future is LIVE! Instagram announced Stories – the Snapchat clone – this summer, then in November announced that it was adding live video within Stories. Live in Stories offers users the ability to broadcast live, but not save their videos. This is one of the main distinguishing characteristics from Facebook Live. Of course, Facebook is one step ahead. It recently launched 360 Live Video.
So, the feature you’ve all been waiting for – “Live Stories” Instagram – has “gone live” this week in the United States (it will be rolled out globally within the next few weeks. No big announcement (that was already done)… just a Tweet.
