There’s a very cool new feature on Instagram that you’ll be seeing all over starting today – a new live streaming video story!
You can now talk to your followers live and read comments from them in real-time. The people that you follow who are currently airing live will show up first in the stories timeline.
Live videos are not stored after the broadcast ends, so only people who tune in live will be able to catch the clips. This makes the feature different from Facebook Live, which adds the video to the user’s timeline after the stream is complete.
You can check out screencaps of Instagram’s introductory example in the gallery!
