There will be live video with three people together, Instagram launches live room feature
Following the ban on TikTok in India, social networking platform Instagram has added the ‘Reel’ video option. Instagram’s mobile app is then integrated with Facebook Messenger. This time, a special live room feature has been added to this photo-video sharing medium owned by Facebook. In a statement about the feature, Instagram said the special feature has been introduced for a variety of content creators. This allows content creators or users to make live videos with three other users, so that the connection between them becomes stronger.
According to reports, Instagram started experimenting with the live room feature in India a few months ago. Now it has been launched for Indian users only. In a few days, Indonesian users will also be able to use this live room feature. Ajit Mohan, Vice President and Managing Director of Facebook India, said that the company is bringing such innovative features mainly to promote culture and creativity through Instagram.
How to use Instagram Live Room
To use the Instagram Live Room feature, users must either click the plus sign or button at the beginning of the Story tab or swipe left from Instagram’s home screen. After opening the story tray, scroll through the options at the bottom of the screen, click on the Live Camera option, and click on the round shutter button to go live. In this case, users can give any title of the live video if they want.
Once Instagram starts live, you’ll need to click on the camera / room icon to see the join requests who want to join your live. You can also search for a guest’s name from this option and click on that name to send them a request to join the live session. Users can remove the first three after some time if they want and live with the other three.
According to Instagram, views on Instagram Live in India have increased by 60% almost every week since March. As a result, there is no doubt that the audience engagement will increase with this new room feature. Let me tell you, the Instagram Live Room feature will give you the opportunity to come live with three people, as well as help creators start talk shows or podcasts and increase communication with the community.
