Keeping with their plans to focus on video and messaging for teens and creators this year, Instagram has announced they’re making improvements to how users can schedule and promote Live videos.
While simple Live scheduling features have been available on the platform for a while, users can now create dedicated feed posts and Stories to announce scheduled Lives, Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, said in a recent update.
Scheduled Lives will also appear as badges on creator profiles, just below the bio. Followers and visitors will be able to click on the badges to subscribe for Live reminders.
In Mosseri’s update, he also reiterated Instagram’s recent news that the platform’s Remix feature can now be applied to all videos.
🎉 New Features 🎉
Some fun ones this week:
– Live in Profiles
– Remix Video
