From this Monday, you will be able to organize video lives for up to four participants. Instagram inaugurates “Live Rooms” to discuss with several people live.
Lives are popular on Instagram. The vertical format of live video emerged among the stories last year and is enjoying great success. Until now, it was possible to invite another Instagrammer to chat. Now, the social network increases the capacity for interaction.
Since Monday March 1, Instagram has been rolling out “Live Rooms”. This new feature allows you to invite up to three other participants to his live. The platform hopes to encourage content creators to show imagination live in a collaborative way.
For podcasts, talk shows or exchanges
Instagram puts forward the arguments of creative, authentic, engaged exchanges, hoping that Live Rooms will be monopolized by its subscribers to initiate “Talk shows, podcasts or live exchange sessions with the community. “
Anyone can join a live by asking the organizer. Three guests can be added simultaneously or during the live. But the network has nonetheless provided some guarantees to users: accounts blocked by one of the participants will not be able to join a live or even watch it, just like the guests who have previously violated the rules of the community.
The tools set up by Instagram to secure the use of the platform, such as reporting, the ability to block or filter comments, are also available during a live.
