Instagram Working On Live Streaming, CEO Confirms
The live video feature appears to be coming to Instagram. The first sign of it had shown up earlier after the Russian user discovered the live functionality testing in the Stories section. There was a red button reading “Go Insta”, which turned the stream on.
Launching the live video feature was just a matter of time as Instagram was always the way for people to capture the moment, which its name actually refers to.
“If I’m trying to strengthen relationships with someone I love, them streaming video to me live would be an amazing way to be closer to them”, Instagram’s CEO Kevin Systrom said.
It’s yet unknown when the feature will be live, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see it in your devices shortly. Along with that, it might be possible to see the tie between Instagram live streaming and the same feature from its parent company Facebook.
And meanwhile, you can enjoy Instagram Stories, which got a major update to differentiate from Snapchat.
