Like taking live videos on Instagram and wish you can keep them forever? Now you can.
Users will now be able to save their Instagram live videos on their devices after the broadcast, even if it disappears from the app, Instagram announced Monday.
“We are excited by how our community is using live video to connect with their friends and followers in the moment,” the image-sharing platform said in a blog post. “This is just the first of many improvements we’ll be making to live stories this year.”
With this update, users will be able to repost videos that were once live to their profile, so those who didn’t get to see it live have a chance to look at them after the broadcast has ended.
