Instagram has introduced three new features to encourage more users to broadcast live on its platform. This social media platform has extended the limit of “live video” from the previous one-hour limit to four hours. There is also a new “real-time archive” option that has been enabled, which can save all real-time videos for up to 30 days. You can only access this archive, you can download the live video to upload it to IGTV.
New features are announced by Twitter, And the biggest possibility is the expansion of real-time video restrictions. The previous limit was one hour, but it has now been extended to four hours. This means that users who like to go live while cooking or take live lessons do not have to restart the live broadcast every hour. Instagram has also launched Live Archives, which will now keep all your live videos. So far, Instagram has only archived stories and posts, but now it also introduces real-time video archiving.
This option can be found in the location where your stories and posts are archived, and these live videos will be archived for 30 days after the live broadcast ends. To find this new option, live video users should click on the hamburger menu in the upper right corner of the profile screen. You need to click on the “Archive” option here, and then select “Real-time Archive”. Videos found in the archive can be downloaded and then re-uploaded on IGTV.
In addition, Instagram hopes to increase the discovery of real-time video in the app and introduce a new “Live Now” section in the IGTV app. A dedicated “Live Now” section will also be displayed in “Explore” so that you can discover more live content.
