Instagram Update!


Instagram announced yesterday that they now offer the option to save your live broadcasts.

This is an amazing new feature that many people will be thrilled with.


Until now one of the biggest issues with IG live video was that it appears in your IG stories and the video would disappear after 24hours. If you have created an amazing live video with great content, it always felt a huge waste that it would be gone and you couldn’t re-use it.



How to make a live video:

In Instagram, go to your home feed by clicking the house shape icon at the bottom left of the screen.

From here click the camera icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen. Scroll left at the bottom to LIVE. Your connection will be checked and you’ll be given a countdown of 3 when you will be live.

This will go out to all your followers and will stay on your IG stories for 24 hours.


How to save a live video:

When you are done. Click end video. You’ll then be taken to another screen. Click save in the top right-hand corner of the screen. The video will now be saved to your camera roll as well as added to your IG stories. Then click done!

Unfortunately, you can’t save the comments, likes or the number of viewers, but at least we can save the video, which is a definite step in the right direction.


According to the Instagram blog, we can expect many more features and Instagram updates this year, especially surrounding video! With so many great new features already released recently- I can’t wait to see more!
