You Can Now Share Live Video to Instagram Stories

New replay feature being rolled out today
Instagram, Insta Live, Stories, Update, Streaming

With Instagram's live video streaming feature growing in popularity every day, another update has been added to extend the platform's reach even further.

Starting today, users can share a replay of their live video to their Instagram stories, for the same limited time of 24 hours. Simply hit the share button when your live stream has ended and voila, it's automatically added to your disappearing Instagram storyboard. 

So now, when someone you're following shares a replay of their live feed that you've annoyingly missed - you'll see a play button under the profile photos in the stories bar.  You can also tap the right or left side of the screen to go forward or back 15 seconds or tap “Send Message” to reply, as before.

Multiple videos will showcase small arrows at the top, allowing you to jump between the (previously) live clips - ideal if the person you're watching has a tendency to drone on a bit...
