Instagram is one of the most popular social networks among young audiences, and it is not a secret that lately it has been copying Snapchat a bit – quite a bit -. The last function implemented in the social network has been the possibility of broadcasting live videos from Instagram , and if you are one of those people who love to share everything they live on Instagram – I include myself in your group – this interests you, because we are going to teach you how to make a live video on Instagram .
Before starting a couple of considerations. The first: it is not reaching everyone equally . I manage several Instagram accounts and I have only reached two of them, so give it time if it has not yet arrived. The second is that you literally eat the data rate. To make a timely live broadcast is fine, but be careful with using mobile data. Better in Wi-Fi . That said, we begin. You will see that it is very easy.
How to make live videos on Instagram
To make a live video, all you have to do is open Instagram and go to your news feed that, as you can see, has changed a bit. In the upper left you will see a camera. Well, you can press there to slide to the right, whatever you think best, and there you will access the “Instagram Stories” mode.
Once there, notice that you have several options below: normal, “Boomerang” on the right and “Direct” on the left . Swipe left and live video mode will be activated. Now you just have to press the huge button that appears and voila, your live video will start after a three-second countdown. Instagram will send a warning to a part of your followers so they can connect and see you live.
In the tests that I have done in my personal account I must say that the direct one works without problems and that both the quality of the audio and that of the image was quite good – having two phones connected at the same time, one to emit and another to see – . Take a look and do not hesitate to tell us what you think, because as you can see it is quite simple and has no loss – although it never hurts an explanation, however easy it may be.
