Just a few weeks ago, Instagram photo-sharing network created it easy to invite a friend to view your live broadcasts. sadly, the invitation was just one way. Instagram has fixed that, however, with a new option: you’ll currently request to join your friend’s live video.
While you are looking at your buddy’s live video, you’ll tap the new Request button which will show up in the comments area. you will get a confirmation that your friend has accepted the request, and you will get a fast moment to fix your hair and smile before getting connected. Then your screen will split in half and you will be able to hang out live.
When you are doing your own live video, you will be ready to see requests from your own friend’s list, too. just tap the view button to add your friend or cancel the request. there is a new little double smiley face icon, too, that may show you how many requests you’ve got. tap it to see the particular requests or to invite any viewers to join your live video. once you are done broadcasting, simply share the video with your Stories, or hit Discard to delete it fully.image sharing network
