Instagram is also exploring more interactive tools such as offering moderator controls and audio features that will be available in the coming months
Instagram has introduced the Live Rooms feature, giving its users the ability to go Live on Instagram with up to 3 people. Previously, they could go live with only 1 other person in a stream.
The company states this improvement will open up more creative opportunities. For instance, people could start a talk show, host a jam session or co-create with other artists, host more Q&As or tutorials, or just hang out with more of their friends.
Live Rooms also gives creators even more ways to build a business and earn money. Instagram recently announced that Live viewers could purchase badges for their favorite creators to show their love.
With Live Rooms, viewers can buy badges for the hosts and use other interactive features like Shopping and Live Fundraisers.
How it works
- Swipe left and pick the Live camera option.
- Add a title and tap the Rooms icon to add your guests.
- You’ll see people who have requested to go live with you, and you can also search for a guest to add.
- When you start a Live Room, you’ll remain at the top of the screen when you add guests.
As a broadcaster, you can add up to three guests at once or one by one (for example, you could start with 2 guests, and add a surprise guest as the 3rd participant later).
We’ve reported that Instagram users can now restore deleted content.
