We all are living in the era of the 21st century. And in this modern and digital era, almost we all are using a popular social media application, called Instagram. No doubt you all are aware of this application. Almost nobody needs an explanation about this application. However, if still some of you do not know about this application, then let me make you clear that it’s a social media application, which is most widely used in this world for sharing photos and videos. And today, it’s a wide platform for all over the world to connect people with each other.

But the problem with this app is we cant save Instagram posts in our phone gallery, whether it is a photo or a video. Instagram doesn’t have an in-built feature of saving and downloading these kinds of posts. Because its privacy policy doesn’t allow to do such things.

However sometimes we do need those posts to be saved in our phone gallery, but because of Instagram’s privacy policy, we couldn’t do that by using its own app. However, we can use a third-party application to do such things easily.

In this topic, we will cover only the live streaming feature and its treatments. So let’s come to the topic and explore it.

What is Instagram Live streaming feature:

 Instagram was actually made just to share photos and video clips. Apart from the features like posting Photos and Videos in Instagram feeds. Instagram has given its users various other features and facilities too. 

Out of those, there is the most useful and trending feature is Instagram live streaming. Yes! Instagram has given a Live streaming feature to its users so that they can interact with their audience in real-time. This streaming feature allows its users to share their special movement with their followers, while they(users) are enjoying the movement in real-time so that their followers can also join the streamer’s special movement and enjoy the whole play at the very same time. 

This feature allows a user to stream Live for up to an hour. After the live session ended, the video will no longer available until the user saves it or shares it in the IGTV (Instagram Television) feed.

However, most of the time users also need that movement, which captured in the Live stream to be saved in their phone gallery after the live stream ended. So that they can enjoy that memory even after that memorable movement.
