Instagram Adds New Moderator Option for Live Video Streams


Instagram has finally brought a feature to add moderators to a live video stream, who will be able to report comments and remove viewers, and turn off comments for specific viewers as well if needed.

The latest option will enable users to assign a moderator within a stream. Creators can add a moderator during a live stream by tapping the three dots in the comment bar. These moderators can be chosen from the list of suggested accounts, or by searching a particular account in the search bar.

Aimed at giving users more control over how they interact with social media, Instagram recently started rolling out the ‘Take A Break’ feature to users globally. Further, it made changes to daily time limit settings and added 30 minutes, 45 minutes, one hour, two hours, and three hours options for users. Similarly, in order to give users more control over their Instagram account, the social media company has rolled out the ‘Take A Break’ feature to users globally.

Furthermore, Instagram has recently shut down their IGTV app to focus more on their Reels. The company said that as the support for its dedicated video sharing platform comes to an end, IGTV videos and other video-based content will continue to remain available in the main Instagram app.
