Following up on its announcement a few weeks ago, Instagram will be rolling out Live video in Stories to everyone in the US starting today.
As a recap, you just need to swipe into the Stories camera mode and tap on the Live button. Live video disappear once you’re done recording, in the ephemeral way of today’s day and age. You can also check out some of the best ongoing footage by tapping on the “Top Live” section of the Explore tab.
The feature will be rolling out to everyone in the US over the next few days; it appears to be a server side change, so you probably don’t need to check for an app update, though it doesn’t hurt to be on the latest version.
With Facebook launching 360-degree live video today too, the company is making sure it has all your real-time video needs covered. For more about Live video on Instagram, check out its original announcement post.
