Mobile live video is something we’ve seen come into over the past couple years. Twitter-owned Periscope is the current power player in the field, but Instagram is coming for its lunch. Yesterday Instagram dropped a new update that gives users the option to live stream video from their app.
Going live will notify your followers instantly & from there you can interact with them via chat. The only downside to Instagram Live is you can’t archive your streams at the moment. No word on if they’ll ever add this either. Cnet did a great job previewing the update. Feel free to check it out below.
