The Newest Instagram Feature Has A 'SnapChat' Feel
Last November 2016, Instagram announced that they will be adding new features to the application. This month, they officially rolled out the "Live" video-streaming feature that makes video sharing faster and more fun. With this add-on, people can easily update their friends with the latest happenings.
What To Expect With This Live Video-Streaming Feature?
According to Mac World, the app now lets users record a 10-second to 1-hour video clip and post it live. All they need to do is to swipe right from the feed, open the camera, and tap the "Start Live Video" option. While broadcasting an event, their followers will receive a notification so they can tune-in. Aside from these, they can also allow comments or turn them off altogether.
How Is The Newest Feature of Instagram Similar to Snapchat?
Just like Snapchat, this feature is only good for 24 hours. All videos will disappear the following day so that people can feel more comfortable in sharing whatever kind of stories or event is happening at the moment to their friends, families, and followers. According to Instagram, this feature also allows users to check out popular and new live stories on Explore.
But what makes this live-streaming quite different from others is that videos can only be seen once. After a clip has concluded, it will no longer be available for replay afterward.
More About Instagram's Added Feature
With this latest format, Instagram, which was first introduced as a photo sharing platform, is now ready to take video viewing experience to the next level. As of today, the update is available to most iOS and Android devices in U.S and will continue in the coming days. Still, according to Instagram, the rest of the world can expect an update and try this new feature in the next couple of weeks.
