Instagram Launches Live Videos

Following Twitter’s Periscope, Facebook Live and YouTube, the Facebook's owned online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service is the latest one to join the live video streaming party by announcing that Live Stories is now launching across the U.S.

With Live Videos, Instagram users will finally be able to live stream up to one hour of live video at a time, which can be accessed by swiping to the right from their Instagram feed, and then choosing the new "Start Live Video" button once the camera launches. Last but not least, those who want to simply view live video, they can just head over to the the big "LIVE" badge on top of their accounts.

Reminder: Any video clips from the live streaming feature cannot be saved directly from within the Instagram application.

Live Videos is now rolling out as a free update on Android and iOS devices exclusively in the United States for now, with more countries to get it later on.
