ARTICLE 84461481 Instagram now lets you save livestreamed videos to your phone english ARTICLE

Instagram Stories in January, but it provided an ephemeral experience, disappearing after 24 hours. While you could save recorded photos and videos , live video was an exception. But on Monday, Instagram that lets you hold onto your live broadcast and rewatch it later on.

After you’ve completed a live video, you can either leave it on Instagram Stories and watch it disappear, or if it was really engaging and worth remembering later on, tap on the “Save” button in the upper right corner.

Only the video will be stored, not the comments, likes, number of viewers, or even the live interactions that take place. The video will be saved to your phone’s camera roll and you can then share it to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or anywhere else you’d like. But be warned: Instagram said that when you do so, the video “will no longer be available in the app,” so be careful when you retrieve it.

With the introduction of live video, perhaps the idea was to highlight things and events not necessarily worth memorable, at least in the long term. Maybe you wanted to record a parade, animals hanging out, you’re just bored one afternoon, or perhaps you’re a creative person and just want to show how you design something. With the proliferation of live video and stories into all Facebook properties, including WhatsApp, Messenger, and even the core Facebook app, the ephemeral functionality is intended to not only rip off more of Snapchat, but to appeal to users in different settings.

Instagram claims that this is the “first of many improvements” it plans on making to live videos this year. It did not specify how many people used live video or provide any updated numbers on Instagram Stories usage.

The save update is part of the latest release of Instagram for iOS and Android.

Instagram now lets you save live videos
When Instagram launched its live video streaming feature late last year, it was with a noticeable omission: the ability to save broadcasts once they were concluded, which the company has added to the app today .
It’s a move that puts Instagram Live on par with both Twitter’s Periscope and parent company Facebook’s Live, both of which have allowed users to save videos. When Instagram Live launched, Instagram’s head of product Kevin Weil defended the omission as intentional in order to help make users more comfortable with live-streaming by removing pressure that the videos would be saved forever. It’s worth noting that the replays still don’t save by default, perhaps to still give users the peace of mind that their videos won’t be...

Going live on Instagram? Now you can save live videos to your phone
Like to go live on Instagram but hate to see your videos disappear as soon as you're finished? The photo-focused social media platform now has a solution just for you.
Starting today, Facebook-owned Instagram is rolling out the ability to save live videos to your phone once you've wrapped up a broadcast. This means you can relive (and re-share) your best live moments long after you've moved on to something else. 
While live videos will still vanish from the app proper, you can download the video to your handset by clicking the Save button in the upper right-hand corner. Only the video itself will port over to your phone; all comments, likes, viewer numbers and other interactions won't make the leap. 
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.
This is a change of course for Instagram, which made a point when live video first rolled out on the platform that it wanted videos to disappear to foster a pressure-free environment for users . But because Facebook lets you save live videos, it's not surprising Instagram ended up following suit. 
Users on iOS and Android should see the save ability now. Instagram promises more improvements to come for live stories as the year progresses. This, apparently, is just the start.
