Back in August, Instagram teased it would introduce the ability for users to start a live stream and add a second person after realizing more than one person often appeared physically in a video. Now, that feature is beginning to roll out to both iOS and Android users of the mobile app.


According to Instagram, to add someone to a live stream, you simply tap the faces icon at the bottom of the screen while broadcasting and select who you want to go live with. Afterward, the person you select will appear directly below you in another frame. You also have the option of removing your guest, while they can also choose to exit as well.

The update is available in Instagram version 20 for iOS and Android.
