How To Instagram Live Video

Instagram live videos have gained a lot of popularity among individuals, influencers, and brands as a way to connect with their followers. If you haven’t tried it yet, fear not! We will walk you through the steps to get started.

Step 1: Launch Instagram

First thing’s first, you need to open your Instagram app. Make sure you’re running the latest version of Instagram, as the Live Video feature might not be available in older versions. You can update your app through Google Play Store for Android or App Store for iOS devices.

Step 2: Access the Live Video feature

Once you’ve launched Instagram, tap the camera icon at the top left corner of your screen or swipe right from anywhere in your feed. This will lead you to the Instagram camera. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a menu that includes ‘Live’, ‘Story’, and ‘Reels’. Swipe across to select the ‘Live’ option.

Step 3: Start your Live Video

With ‘Live’ selected, all you need to do now is tap the record button at the bottom of your screen to start your live video. Instagram will check your connection and then start the live video.

Step 4: Manage your Live Video

During the Live Video, you have a variety of tools at your disposal. You can switch between your front and rear cameras by tapping the double-arrow icon. You can also invite a friend to join your live video by tapping the two smiley faces icon.

Step 5: End your Live Video

When you’re ready to end your live video, simply tap ‘End’ at the top right of your screen. A confirmation will pop up asking whether you’re sure, to which you can tap ‘End Live Video’.

Step 6: Save or Share your Live Video

After ending the live video, Instagram gives you the option to save the video to your camera roll or share it to your Instagram story for the next 24 hours. Make your choice and tap ‘Done’.
