Instagram has officially launched the Live video feature and iOS and Android users will get their hands on in the next few weeks. Instagram is upping its game to ape Snapchat by adding disappearing photos and videos in Direct Messages.

Live videos can only be viewed in real-time. That's it, no replays. Thereby, making it more private to share any video, any time.

It's easy to go Live -
