Countdown to your Instagram Live

It's always a good idea to let your followers know in advance about your Instagram Live session. You can do so by using the countdown sticker from the Stories section. Just select it and add the time you're going to go live. Once the countdown ends, your followers will be notified about your Instagram Live.

Connection test

Before starting your Instagram Live, check if you have a secure connection. It's best to use a Wi-Fi connection for a smooth and uninterrupted connectivity. Using mobile data may interrupt your Instagram Live in between. The app is optimised enough to run Instagram Live though.
