Instagram, news for Live Videos: direct sharing on IGTV arrives

Instagram he announced a series of news related to live video, a feature already present for several years but literally exploded during the pandemic thanks to meetings newspapers held by numerous influencers, footballers and various famous people.

In this regard, we remind you the daily appointment on our official account Monday to Friday, at 21:00.

The changes announced by the social platform also confirm in this case Instagram's willingness to continue to push on IGTV. For this reason, the live performed on your account they will no longer pass through the Stories, but they can be shared directly on IGTV through a special button. And there they will remain forever – unless they are manually deleted. In this way the previous 24-hour period therefore lapses within which to watch the live broadcasts within the Stories section.

The possibilities made available by Instagram are three. At the end of the live broadcast, users will be able to:

  • share the live video directly on IGTV. The video will also be saved and published in a post on the Instagram account. By clicking on it you will still be redirected to IGTV
  • download the videos to the memory of your device (in this way you can share it in other platforms)
  • delete the video

The novelties listed above are already active for several days on a limited number of accounts (we noticed them on the Instagram account of HDBlog, but not in the personal ones) and will be distributed to all users over the next few hours.
