Instagram starts testing Live Video Sharing for subscribers

Starting on Tuesday, Instagram subscribers were able to test out the latest new feature for Instagram. This new feature allows you to share a live video stream with a friend who becomes part of your broadcast. You can decide when your guest is ready to leave, or that decision could be left up to the guest. If something comes up that warrants an immediate end to your broadcasting day, tap on the word "Discard" and your signal cuts out immediately, leaving you as relevant as "Glee."

After wrapping up your live feed, you have the choice of adding the final product to Stories, or placing the file in the trash receptacle for future, ahem, study.

It appears as though Live Video Sharing is another new feature designed to make life easier and a small number of users are getting to test this out in Instagram's global communities. We're not not sure how much more testing needs to be done before the feature is green lit, but we'd venture to guess that it won't be terribly long before Instagram buddies are taking virtual walks throughout the fake cities of their home towns.

I really hate Facebook for changing everythinggggggg about Instagram and making it and Facebook basically the same things (one with more focus on words and the other images) they are attacking their own territory
