Instagram addicts rejoice! App now lets you save live videos to watch anytime

Like to go live on Instagram but hate to see your videos disappear as soon as you're finished?

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. But on Monday, Instagram added a feature that lets you hold onto your live broadcast and rewatch it later on.

Open the app and navigate to the "story" feature in the upper left hand corner.

Instagram points out that you will only be able to save your video, not the comments, likes, the number of viewers or any live interactions.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network announced that users can now save their live videos to their phones for future viewing.

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.

Instagram announced the update, which has been rolled out worldwide today, in a blog on its website.

Instagram is rolling out v10.12 which Comes with Save Livestream video Option. It did not specify how many people used live video or provide any updated numbers on Instagram Stories usage.

The update is available in Instagram version 10.12 for iOS, and for Android in the Google Play store.

They can then broadcast for up to an hour. Although it will not be seen on the App feed after you even save that video.
