Instagram now allows requests to join your live stream
November 22, 2017

Going live with your friends is now easier.

Going live on Instagram is getting popular with each single day and today it is introducing a new way for your friends to join your live stream. The new feature will allow your friends to request to join your stream.

To do this, you can simply tap the ‘Request’ button to let your friends know that you want to join them. You can do this while the live video is being done. Once your friend accepts, viewers will now see a split screen of both your streams.

Just like previous live streams, you have the option to save that video as a story or simply discard it. “Going live together is the best way to connect in real time and have fun with friends, even when you’re not together. With this update, friends have even more ways to quickly join each other’s live videos,” Instagram said in a blog post.
