Instagram – Release Live Video Broadcasts to Eventually All Users

Instagram today December twelve two thousand sixteen began rolling out live video broadcasts to all users. Initially, not every Instagram end user will be able to broadcast live. If your account was recently created, you may have to wait until you can live video stream.

Also, your live video automatically gets deleted after your live feed ends. You can share your live feed to your Instagram followers. I would recommend you update or make sure your version of Instagram on your smart device is current.

In order to share your live video broadcast:

* Tap on top left of your screen or swipe right anywhere in Feed
* Tap Live on bottom of your screen and then tap “Start Live Video”
* Your followers might become notified when you begin a live video
* Number of viewers appears in top right of your screen
* Comments appear at bottom

Tap Comment to add a comment. Tap and hold a comment to pin it to top. Turn comments off by tapping and selecting “Turn Off Commenting”.

Keyword filters you have turned on will apply to comments on your live video. When you are completed, tap “End” in top right then tap to confirm. At time of this blog post creation, I do not have access to Instagram live video.

Instagram, claims that you may not be able to share a live video broadcast if you recently created an account. This new feature is called Instagram Stories. Your live video broadcasts appear in your Stories.

Also, you will be able to browse other live video broadcasts. Finally, all users are supposed to get access to live video broadcasts in next few days, with exception of those accounts just recently created.
