Little by little, Instagram continues to implement new features, some local and others. “inspired” by other social networks. Already in his time he added the stories and Snapchat live events, and now he’s just added a feature that clearly reminds us of the Twitch Group Squad.
And it is that the latest addition to the popular social network is called Live Rooms and, according to Instagram itself, it allows broadcast live with up to three people. Until now, as we know, only one user could be added to a live or “Direct” broadcast. Live Rooms will soon be available to all users around the world.
More possibilities for your “live broadcasts”
By allowing the live broadcast of four people, the goal of Live Rooms, as Instagram explains is open up more creative opportunities– Whether it’s starting a talk show, co-creating with other artists, hosting Q&A sessions, creating more engaging tutorials, or just spending time with more friends.
With Live Rooms, spectators will also be able to purchase host badges and use other interactive features such as online shopping and fundraising. Additionally, Instagram is making sure to explore more interactive tools, such as moderator controls or audio features that will be available in the coming months.
To start a live room, you need to slide your finger to the left and choose the “Live” option. Then add a title and press the “Rooms” icon to add your guests. In addition to seeing people who have requested to broadcast with you, you can also search for a guest to add.
When you start a live room, the icon will stay at the top of the screen to add participants. As an advertiser, you can add up to three guests at a time or one by one
Instagram claims to have designed this new update keep safety in mind. Therefore, people blocked by any of the active participants in the live room will not be able to join it. Neither are users whose live access has been revoked due to violations. Features currently available to Live Room hosts, such as the option to flag and block comments and apply comment filters, will also be available to Live Room hosts.
