  • You can now save your Instagram Live streams to your camera roll

It has since been gradually rolling out this feature to more users across the globe. While Instagram has allowed users to post live videos for a little while now, once the broadcast ended there was no way to re-watch any of the footage as it would disappear from the app. This feature was already available on Facebook, and now Instagram has also rolled this update, giving users the option of saving their live videos.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network announced that users can now save their live videos to their phones for future viewing. Once a video save is completed, users will be able to see it right inside their camera roll so it won't be hard to find later on. But on Monday, Instagram added a feature that lets you hold onto your live broadcast and rewatch it later on. Using this feature is easy.

While live videos will still vanish from the app proper, you can download the video to your handset by clicking the Save button in the upper right-hand corner.

This update is now rolling out to iOS and Android users at the moment and will be coming to Windows users in the coming months. Note that you won't be able to save comments, likes, number of viewers, or any other interactions, but just being able to save in the first place is a major step forward.
