Yesterday, on April 8, Instagram announced that it’s testing a new feature which lets two people go Live in the same stream.
To be more clear, Instagram’s new feature is simply inviting a ‘guest’ to join your live stream from their own device. “Simply tap the new icon on the bottom right and tap “Add” to invite anyone who’s currently watching. Once they join, you’ll see the screen split into two and your friend pop up right below you,” wrote Instagram in the blog post.
An interesting part of this feature is the idea that you can remove and add any of your Friends at any time.
According to the official announcement, the feature is currently being tested by a small number of users and will roll out globally “in the next few months.”
