You can now save Instagram Live Stories

While Instagram has allowed users to post live videos for a little while now, once the broadcast ended there was no way to re-watch any of the footage as it would disappear from the app. But on Monday, Instagram added a feature that lets you hold onto your live broadcast and rewatch it later on. Tap the button and save the video. After your live stream is over the content is deleted forever - unlike Facebook Live or Periscope which save your video so audiences can view it after the fact.

Instagram is now improving its live videos platform for mobile with the ability for broadcasters to download their own live videos post-broadcasting.

Once saved, click Done, and your video will be forever enshrined in your camera roll, though it will no longer be visible on the Instagram app itself.

Instagram announced the update, which has been rolled out worldwide today, in a blog on its website. If you don't see the feature yet, just update the app and start saving your interactions.
