You can now save live videos on Instagram for Android and iOS, here is how it works

Instagram continues to add new features to its mobile apps, some of them based on the users' feedback. The option to save live videos must have been on the top of the list since Instagram has decided to make available in the latest version of its app.

If you've been using Instagram, then you might want to know that the new feature is part of version 10.12, which has already been uploaded to the App Store and Google Play Store.

Starting today, the option to save live videos can be used on any compatible Android or iOS smartphone at the end of a broadcast. The new feature can be enabled from the Save option in the upper right corner as soon as the broadcast ends.

However, the developers mention that while you will be able to save your live videos, the comments, likes, number of viewers or any live interactions will not be saved.

You can find your saved live video in the camera roll, so don't look for it in the Instagram application after tapping Done. According to Instagram, this is just the first of many new features and improvements that will be added to the live videos feature this year.

I was already sleepy when I am navigating all news at Phonearena's homepage. What I've read on this article's title is "you can now save lives by video on instagram". I quickly thought Phonearena misspelled it or its a typo, it must be "you can now save lives by liking video on Instagram". I just hope they would bring the Facebook's feature where you can save life by just liking the picture of a sick person.
