Updated May 29,2019 | by Bennie

Since 2017, Instagram has added the feature of shared live story, which enables users to stream a live video and share a replay of their live stories for up to 24 hours. Thanks to this feature that users have a second chance to view those latest videos.

I will provide you the specific steps on how to rewatch Instagram live videos just by sharing the videos.

Step 1. In order to share your live video, you should broadcast one first. You can swipe over to "Live" mode in the Stories camera, tap the button and stream away. 



While filming a live video, people can leave comments by simply tap Comment on the bottom of the screen, and like your video. Anyone who is viewing the video can see those comments and likes.

Step 2. Once you finished your live video, tap “End” on the top right corner on the screen. Then from the pop-up screen, choose “End Live Video”.



Step 3. After you tap on “End Live Video”, another new screen pop up. You can know how many people watch your video so far, and a toggle near the button screen says that “Share your live video for the next 24 hours so more people can watch it”. The slider will default on the blue (On) option.


If you don’t want to share it, tap the toggle and select “Discard” to delete your live. Of course, you can top “Save” on the right corner to download your live video.

Note: Live video replay includes all the comments and likes from the original video. Once you share the live video, people can rewatch it for the next 24 hours.
