Instagram‘s Live Video feature is one of the most used feature of the app and if you struggle getting viewers while streaming, Instgram has a new update for you. Starting today, the app is allowing users to send their live videos right to the Direct inbox of a follower or a group of them.
Live videos still work as they always have, and this new feature only adds the ability to share it with friends so they can join in. Tapping the little arrow button at the bottom of the screen brings up a menu of your followers. After that, you just tap the accounts you want Instagram to ping for you.
With that, viewers of your live videos can also send them to others using the same method, but this option can be disabled in the settings.
