Facebook and Instagram Lives have been doubling up in a week as more people use these platforms during the ongoing lockdown. Looking forward to this opportunity to provide easier access to these features, Instagram has made Live streams accessible on the web. This means one can easily watch a live stream directly on their desktop.
This new change came after Instagram has added the Direct Message facility for everyone on the web. The experience is almost similar to that of the mobile platform and supports two-person streams, however, it adds the advantage of extra screen space to keep comments separate from the video. Comments have been moved to the right making it easier for everyone to check them out.
Well, you can’t start a broadcast from your desktop. So, you can only broadcast from your mobile phone or tablet but can be seen on all platforms. This is really a great step from Instagram in making the desktop version more useful for the users especially when they are stuck at their home during the lockdown.
