This year in August Instagram has introduced the Stories which are included to compete with snapchat. Stories are the way to share photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours with their followers. Now coming back to Live video feature, it will be the second big feature which will be added since the launch of Instagram.
Currently there are a few social networks, which had a live streaming feature i.e. Facebook and YouTube. Although we are very excited for this feature, but there is not any information about when this feature will be live for Normal users.
