This could change the way you use live videos on Instagram

Instagram Stories received live video support in January, but it provided an ephemeral experience, disappearing after 24 hours.

Once saved, click Done, and your video will be forever enshrined in your camera roll, though it will no longer be visible on the Instagram app itself.

In the past, people may have been discouraged from live streaming via Instagram since they wouldn't be able to keep the videos after their broadcast had ended.

Until now, live videos have disappeared from the site at the end of the broadcast.

Instagram has announced that starting today, users will have the option to save their live video to their phone at the end of a broadcast.

Grassley to lead this week's hearing on Supreme Court nominee
But with only 52 Republicans in the Senate, Republicans could not break a Democrat filibuster, if there is one . However, with Republicans controlling the majority of the Senate, Gorsuch's confirmation appears inevitable .

With the introduction of live video, perhaps the idea was to highlight things and events not necessarily worth memorable, at least in the long term.

Instagram Live Videos can now be saved after the broadcast is over which gives users the opportunity to relive the moments of their broadcast.

To broadcast live, users simply need to swipe right from their feed to open the camera, and tap "Start Live Video". Only the video itself will port over to your phone; all comments, likes, viewer numbers and other interactions won't make the leap.

The update is available in Instagram version 10.12 for iOS, and for Android in the Google Play store.
