Instagram is improving their Live feature by doubling the number of people who can participate in a Live.
Since this feature launched, you’ve only ever been able to go live with one other person. However, this update will now allow you to go live with 3 other people. Instagram is hoping this will increase the uptake of this feature. They have suggested it could now be used to start talk shows, host music sessions and use it to host more interesting events.
A recent update to Lives has allowed creators to build their business and make money. Viewers can purchase badges to support their favourite creators. Hosts can also have interactive features for Shopping and Fundraising. This mixture of new features and expanded Live participants, should benefit users who want to pursue more creative avenues of building their business and collaborating with others.
