Instagram Testing a Feature That Lets You Go Live With Your Friend

Apps News

Instagram is beginning to test the ability to go live with a friend – giving people more ways to have fun sharing in the moment.

The company says that this is one of several new features it has introduced to live video this year, in addition to the ability to save your live video to your phone or share it to your story.

“Live video helps people connect with their friends and followers in the moment and in an authentic way, but sometimes it can be intimidating when you’re on your own. With this update, users will be able to bring in a guest to go live with them and follow along as friends like and comment,” the company said in a statement. “We’re currently testing this with a small percentage of users and will continue to improve the experience as we roll it out to everyone over the coming months.”
