Instagram Live Videos now available for some users on Windows 10 Mobile

| |

Back in November of 2016, Instagram announced that it would be introducing support for live videos so users could have new ways to share the moment. Unfortunately, and as has been the routine, the Live Videos feature first rolled out to iOS and Android users, and Windows Phone fans were left in the dust. According to WindowsPhoneArea, a few short months after the initial rollout, some Windows 10 Mobile users are now reporting that the feature is now live on their devices.

To check to see if you have the Live Videos feature on your Windows 10 Mobile Instagram app, you should swipe to the right from the main Instagram feed, and then select the "Live Camera" mode.  After you do so, and when you start broadcasting, your Instagram followers will receive notifications and you will see that they have started watching you.

Additionally, on Windows 10 Mobile you also now can send photos and videos to your followers in Snapchat-like messages, which will disappear after 24 hours.  Do you have Live Videos feature on your Instagram app? If you don't, you should not worry, as the feature will slowly be rolling out to users this week. As always, let us know what you think by dropping us a comment below!
