Switch up after switch up! So what’s new on Instagram this week?
Well, popular photo-sharing app has introduced an option to allow it’s users to share a replay of live video to Instagram Stories.
So if your fav celeb or friend went live hours ago and you happen to miss it, yu can watch the whole replay of the video… Yes, that’s if they opt to share it.
When your broadcast has ended, you’ll be able to tap “Share” at the bottom of the screen to add your replay to Instagram Stories for 24 hours. You can also tap the toggle and choose “Discard,” and your live video will disappear from the app as usual.
When someone you follow shares a replay, you’ll see a play button under their profile photo in the stories bar. Tap it to watch the video and see comments and likes from the original broadcast. You can also tap the right or left side of the screen to go forward or back 15 seconds, or tap “Send Message” to reply.
If someone has shared multiple replays, you’ll see arrows at the top so you can easily jump between videos. And when watching your own replay, the number of viewers will include everyone who saw it live and in stories.
These updates are available as part of Instagram version 10.26 available for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
