Instagram has launched Live Rooms, a new feature that will let users go live with up to three other friends, saying the feature has been requested for a while now.
For a while now, users on the social media network have had the option to go live alone or even adding support for a friend to be able to join you on a live stream, this was, however, limited to only one more person.
Live Rooms also gives creators more ways to monetize their work. Viewers can show appreciation for their hosts by buying badges during the streams, and use other interactive features such as Shopping and Live Fundraisers.
How to Get started with Live Rooms
- First, swipe left and pick the Live camera option.
- Next, add a title and tap the Rooms icon to select your guests. You’ll see people who have requested to go live with you and can also search for guests to add.
- When you start a Live Room, you’ll remain at the top of the screen when you add guests. You can add up to three guests all at once or one-by-one.
