Instagram Raises the Participant Limit in Live Streams to 4


Social media giant Instagram launched the ‘Live Rooms’ feature, which increased the number of live broadcast participants to 4, which was previously limited to 2 people. The new feature is expected to reach all users this week.

Social media giant Instagram, under the umbrella of Facebook, continues to work on new features to make the application experience better. One of these features that the US company worked on was ‘Live Rooms’, which allows more people to participate in the live broadcast at the same time.

Thanks to this new feature called Live Rooms, the number of participants in Instagram live broadcasts, which was limited to 2 people in the past, will increase to 4 people. In a blog post on the topic, Instagram says this feature will encourage people to start a “talk show or podcast” or collaborate with other creators.

The number of participants increases to 4 in Instagram live broadcasts:

Increasing the number of people who can simultaneously participate in the live stream also makes it easier for content creators to appeal to audiences. This application, which can potentially increase the number of followers, naturally creates a new revenue stream for content creators.

However, the new feature of Instagram draws attention with its similarity to Clubhouse, where people can only communicate with voice and make live conversations in the rooms. Clubhouse is known as a voice-based application where more than 10 speakers can speak at the same time and more than 8,000 people can join rooms.

At this point, unlike Clubhouse, Instagram Live requires people to be in front of the camera as opposed to only voice communication. Also, the fact that the Clubhouse is currently only available on iOS devices and the invitation to join makes Instagram Live one step ahead.

The Instagram Live Rooms feature, which is available as of today, is expected to reach all users within the week. You can share your thoughts about the new feature with us in the comments section.
