Look at you!

Now that you’re an Instagram stories expert, the next step is learning how to go live.

To go live, act as if you are creating a new story.

To the left of “NORMAL” is “LIVE”. Once “Start Live Video” is clicked, your followers will be notified and it will start recording.

You can select between doing it as a selfie and talking to the camera or just taking a video of what’s in front of you (a sporting event, a cooking demo, etc).

When users click to view your live video, their username will appear on the screen. They are able to comment and like the video.

When the live video is complete, the video will save to your story.

Hang out with Other Users

Instagram recently added a feature where you can live chat with a guest.

While you are live, you can invite another user to join.
