To be able to save videos on Instagram, all you need do is click on the Save icon whose appearance we have on the top right. This is preceding the end of the live broadcasts so when you click on the save icon, such live video will then be saved to the camera roll of your phone. Meanwhile it is quite important we add here that what you save is particularly the video and not the viewers, comments nor likes.
Instagram is beaming with excitement on the update as revealed in a blogpost by Instagram “We are excited by how our community is using live video to connect with their friends and followers in the moment. This is just the first of many improvements we’ll be making to live videos this year.”
