How to go live in instagram rooms

Instagram users rejoice!

Instagram has recently upgraded its Live video feature to include ROOMS. The new update is a big deal for influencers such as myself, who are constantly on the go and need to be able to share content wherever they are.

Find your Instagram Live feature inside your Instagram Stories

1. Access your stories by swiping to the right until you see the Live tab

2. Add your Live title and add a filter if you want one!

3. Check out the amount of live viewers, maybe do this a few times to see when your audience is online

4. Hit the Go Live button and then add your viewers to your live

Instagram Rooms allow up to 3 guests (totalling 4 live participants) within your Live which allows you to run debates, Q&A's and training videos or just a great conversation where you and your guests are equally contributing.

    1. Invite guests to join you on Instagram Live
