Instagram announced today that it will support live streams with up to four participants per room. The new Instagram Live Rooms feature is in distribution, reaching Android and iOS users in the coming days.
After a period of testing in India, Indonesia and other Asian markets, Instagram doubles the number of participants allowed in each “Live”. It is a gradual and phased distribution for both mobile platforms.
Instagram Live Rooms arrived
Up until now, Instagram rights supported two people. This genre was popularized in UK with headings such as “How does Bicho Mexe ?, coined by Bruno Nogueira and following the type of live interview, with two people.
On each stream this window of opportunity was limited to one guest. With the new implementation – dubbed Live Rooms – Instagram will allow us to create live streaming groups with four players, doubling the previous capacity.
The social network hopes to attract new possibilities for creating content in different formats, bringing more people to each live room. It is a new space with several creative opportunities, whether to relax or spread something more serious.

For content creators, Live Rooms provide monetization mechanisms so that users can make money from the new feature.
