How to use Instagram's new Live Rooms feature

Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram has rolled out a new feature — Live Rooms — for creators in India to go live with up to three other users. “The early tests for this feature were done in India and now India is one of the first countries to roll it out more broadly,” said the company.

The rollout for ‘Live Rooms’ has begun and will be available to everyone in India and Indonesia soon, said Instagram.

Instagram said that since March, Instagram Live views in India grew 60% on a week-on-week basis and with this feature, the app aims to give creators a way to expand their reach.

Here are the steps you need to follow in order:

To go live


Tap the plus sign in top left hand corner of your stories tray or click the “Create” plus icon in the top right of home navigation bar


Scroll to and tap the Live camera option at the bottom


Use the menu on the left to add a title if you so choose


Tap the circular button to go live

To add guests to your live stream


While you’re already live, tap the Camera/Rooms icon


Now, you’ll see people that have requested to join your live. You can also search for your guest’s name to send them a request to join your live


Simply tap on the guest’s handle to add them

Ajit Mohan, vice president and managing director, Facebook India, said, “Creators are at the forefront of pushing culture and creativity on Instagram and we’re constantly innovating to help them express themselves better. This year in particular has seen extensive use of Live, and as physical distancing norms continue, Live will remain an invaluable feature to bring friends, families and audiences together, and foster meaningful conversations. From the launch of Reels, to the testing and rollout of Live Rooms, India is playing a crucial role in the way products are being designed for the future.”
