Popular photo-sharing service Instagram announced on Monday that they would be adding two new features to their mobile app.
The first feature is the introduction of Live video into Instagram Stories while the second feature gives users the ability to send and receive auto-disappearing photos and videos for groups and friends in Direct.
You can easily start live streaming by swiping right from your Instagram feed to open the camera where you’ll find a new “Start Live Video” button.
Instagram notes in its blog post announcing the new feature that “your friends may get a notification when you go live so they can tune in. While you’re live, you can pin a comment for everyone to see or turn comments off altogether.”
