Now You Can Add A Friend To Your Instagram Live Story: Check Out How!
Creating your own Instagram story is great fun and things get all the more exciting as you add more friends. The latest update on October 24, 2017, has made this possible and now making live stories with your friends is just a few clicks away. The best part is that your friends don’t have to be around you to be a part of the live story.
So adding a friend to your story on Instagram is comparatively easier. All you need to do is:
- Go to the story screen as you swipe to the right on your home screen.
- Choose “Live” option from the list and once you are live the icon will appear at the bottom looking apparently like two smilies next to each other.
- Tap on the “double smiley” icon. This icon helps you to add more friends to your live story.
However, the thing to remember is that you can add only one friend at a time and so be wise with your decision.
Before adding your friend to your live story, you need to know if your friend is watching your live story as well. You might as well want to inform your co-host about your online venture beforehand. As soon as you have clicked on the add friend option, your friend will receive a notification and then they can decide whether they want to join or not.
When your friend agrees to co-host the story with you, the screen will split into half and your friend’s feed will be available in the second part of the screen. You and your friend can add filters too, to make your story even more interesting.
Furthermore, getting rid of irritating co-host is also quite easy. All you need to do is click on the X icon located on the upper side of there screen. The story will start covering you only. You might even introduce a new friend to your feed.
Hence, in this way, making a story through Instagram is so easy and adding your friends to the same feed adds to the excitement, provided that you know the right techniques. Let us know if you have tried this exciting feature
