How to go live on Instagram: New feature allows users to stream live video

Instagram rolled out its “Live” video-streaming feature Monday, allowing users to go live on the photo and video sharing network.

The app is still being released, but according to the company, everyone will be able to stream live video on Instagram within the next few days.

The feature allows users to share 10-second video clips with the videos disappearing after 24 hours. You can live-stream an event using the feature for up to one hour.

Live is built on Instagram’s Stories feature. To go live with videos, you swipe right from feed to open the camera and tap the “Start Live Video” button.

You can send a notification to friends when you go live so they can tune in. And according to the company’s press release, “While you’re live, you can pin a comment for everyone to see or turn comments off altogether.”

The company first announced the feature in November.  

Here’s a tutorial to show you how to do it.
