Instagram Officially Launches Option to Share Instagram Live Broadcasts to IGTV

Instagram has been rolling this option out over the last few weeks, but today, it’s officially announced that all users can now save the video of their Instagram Live broadcast to IGTV, and keep it available for viewing for as long as they choose.

Up till now, Instagram Live broadcasts have only, technically been available to viewers during their broadcast – i.e. when the ‘Live’ marker appears on the users’ Stories bubble. Users have additionally had the option to save the video of their Instagram Live broadcast to their camera roll, then re-upload as they see fit – but now, you’ll also have the capacity to send the video direct to IGTV, which could provide some additional benefits, especially considering the gradual development of the IGTV platform.
