Instagram Adds Feature to Save Live Videos

Instagram now lets you save livestreamed videos to your phone

Instagram addicts rejoice! App now lets you save live videos to watch anytime

Instagram is now improving its live videos platform for mobile with the ability for broadcasters to download their own live videos post-broadcasting.

Instagram Stories received live video support in January, but it provided an ephemeral experience, disappearing after 24 hours. Once a video save is completed, users will be able to see it right inside their camera roll so it won't be hard to find later on.

However, it does allow users to retain a copy of their live video broadcast and watch it later should they want to.

While live videos will still vanish from the app proper, you can download the video to your handset by clicking the Save button in the upper right-hand corner.

Users will only be able to save the video itself, not the comments, likes, number of viewers or any live interactions. If you don't see the feature yet, just update the app and start saving your interactions.

The video will no longer be available on the app.

Instagram jumped on to the live streaming bandwagon in November a year ago.

This feature is part of Instagram version 10.12 that's available right now for both iOS and Android.

Instagram's feature is very similar to Periscope and Facebook Live, in that you are able to comment and tap the Heart button to send a sea of floating hearts into view.
