Instagram announces major changes to live streaming feature

Instagram continues to focus on improving its live video experience, and this week, it announced multiple changes that will make streaming on the platform and then saving those live videos easier.

The biggest update is that streamers are no longer limited to 60-minute broadcasts โ€” they can go live for up to four hours.

This extended timeframe will be available to all Instagram users globally, so long as they have no history of IP or policy violations.

People will also be able to view their own live streams in their private archive, similar to Stories and Posts, for up to 30 days after they air.

They can choose to download the content and post it elsewhere.

Finally, Instagram is adding a โ€œLive Nowโ€ section to IGTV where people will find content to watch live at that moment.
