Instagram Live Rooms: How to go live with four people total
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Instagram has a feature called Live Rooms, which is designed to get more people to live at the same time. Here’s how it works.
What is Instagram Live Rooms?
Live Rooms is an Instagram feature that allows you and three other people to video chat during a live stream, up from the previous limit of two. Instagram said it hoped people would use Live Rooms to start a “talk show or podcast” or hold a “jam session”. Either way, going live with more people could attract a larger audience, as subscribers of all attendees will see the room live and be able to learn about it.
Keep in mind that Instagram launched Live Rooms at a time when Clubhouse – an invite-only audio chat room service – had become an overnight success and is the latest go-to social app. It allows more than 10 people to talk at a time, although Clubhouse rooms can reach up to 8,000 people before they are full. Instagram Live Rooms only allows a total of four people to talk at a time, but we could see the feature expand to allow more than 10 people.
Note that unlike Clubhouse, Instagram Live requires people to be in front of the camera.
How Instagram Live Rooms Work
To start a live room:
- Open the latest version of the Instagram mobile app.
- Swipe left and choose the Live Camera option.
- Add a title and tap the Rooms icon to add your guests.
- You will see the people who have requested to live with you.
- You can also search for a guest to add.
- As a broadcaster, you can add up to three guests at a time or one at a time.
- When you start a Live Room, you stay at the top of the screen.
Remark : people blocked by one of the active participants in the live room will not be able to join the live room. Additionally, Instagram said features currently available to Live hosts, such as the ability to report and block comments, will also be available to Live Rooms hosts.
Who can use Instagram Live Rooms?
Live Rooms are available worldwide for everyone starting March 1, 2020.
