Welcome to The Connected Church news!
This news is from Instagram.
Last week, Instagram announced that you can now live stream on their platform for up to 4 hours.
Earlier, the limit was only 60 minutes, and now they’ve increased it to 4 hours, which means if you have longer content that you would like to live stream, you can now do it without being interrupted. Good news for ministries that are teaching and have long-form interaction with the followers. Sometimes these interviews and interactions on live stream could go on and on. So it’s nice that Instagram has looked at it. Especially during this lockdown where live streams are becoming very popular, this could be a big thing. The other announcement was about Live Archives. Instagram now lets you save your live stream for up to 30 days before they get deleted. So you can have a little more longevity for your content on Instagram.
