General News Instagram's new feature lets you place a request to join your friend's live video
Advertisement
#1

Instagram will finally allow you the ability to join your friend when they go live, remotely. As part of the latest update to the app, you will be able to make a request to join your friend’s live video. Until now, if you are going live through Instagram, you could invite a friend to only view the live broadcast. However, with the new update, your friends can now request for participation. This is how it works.

If you are watching a live video of your friend on Instagram, you can simply tap on the request button (double smiley) which is located in the comments section. Once, the friend confirms your request, you will get a few moments before your camera starts broadcasting your side of the story live. The screen will be split in half so you can do the live with your friend.

You can leave the live video whenever you want to. Also, friends in your list will also be able to see the request button to join your live. You can then tap the View button to add your friend or cancel the request. In our test, while we were able to add a friend to the video, we were not able to send out a request. Now, this could mean the feature is being gradually rolled out to all users.

As Instagram explains, the request icon will have two smiley faces and will also have a red number showing how many requests you have. Upon tapping the icon, you will be able to see both requests and current viewers.

If you are hosting a live video and other friends have joined it, you can choose to remove the guest and add someone else at any time. It is to be noted that you can only add one guest to share the live video. However, you can choose to add that one guest and replace with some other guest, who is watching the live video. Once you finish broadcasting, you can choose to share it with others through Stories or discard it.
