Instagram Considering Instagram Live More Guests #infographic

Live-streaming option with COVID-19 lockdowns has become common among Insta users.

People have used the Zoom video chat feature where they could talk at a time with several people. Another app that has gained popularity during this period is Houseparty, which allows one to share their images and videos via video chat at a period with up to six people in the app.

And recently, Adam Mosseri, president of Instagram, said in an online Q and A that Insta is considering encouraging more users to go live via Instagram Live.

"Right now you can only go live with one other person at a time, we're looking into how we can extend that, but it's not clear that this is the most important thing we can add to Live, versus only gaining stability, adding more functionality, making it available on the network, etc.," Mosseri said.

If Instagram could add the Instagram Live feature to the site, a huge increase in use could be expected, but enabling multi-participant streaming through Instagram Live would be of benefit to users themselves.

But we don't know for sure whether this feature will ever see the light of day, given that multi-participant streaming is costly when it comes to video transfer rates and data loading which results in that demads on the hosting systems. Despite of this, several video services finally came to a standstill. The entire multi-streaming process to a massive audience will be very expensive for Instagram and there is no surprise there.

If you're considering video messaging, it's confined to a smaller audience and there's no outside streaming, so no hassle or big expense compared to Live Streams.

Last year, Facebook had also launched a live streaming service with guests that it took down, and the explanation is likely to be increased complexity and expense.

"We're committed to creating a genuinely social video experience on Facebook, and we're continuously reviewing the collection of features that we're providing to the group. It's crucial that we prioritize and concentrate on interactions that drive the community's most interest." This gives us an impression that it was a expensive choice and that Facebook couldn't bear it with no substantial use.

It will mean that Instagram does not allow more visitors in one stream at a time but it seems worth an experiment with the way things are right now.

If this option is rolled out by Instagram it is expected to become famous in no time. In addition, the Instagram Live web alternative will be a great addition too.

There's no exact date when these choices will be released by Instagram but we should expect to see one of them in the next few weeks.
