First, there was Facebook Live, and now Instagram Live is rolling out to the masses.
Instagram is taking a break from borrowing new features from Snapchat to borrow one from its parent company.
The feature, which allows users to broadcast from their phones on Instagram in real time, will be available to all users starting this week. It was previously available only to select users.
To start a broadcast, users should open the Stories feature and click on the “Live” tab at the bottom. Instagram will also feature a “Top Live” section on the Explore tab so that users can find other live broadcasts that might interest them.
