It worth noting that only videos can be saved, but not likes, comments, the number of views and other things associated with a live video. The saved video will be stored in your camera roll and you can share it with friends using Whatsapp, Facebook, and such similar apps.

Regarding this, Instagram warned that when you do so, the video will no longer be available in the app, so better be careful before retrieving. Not to forget, you can only save those videos immediately after its broadcast. So, you have to be really quick while saving it else you can not go back if you forgot to click save.

The time required to save the video depends entirely on its size. Facebook Live have already allowed users to save videos for later, so this Instagram update may not turn out to be a surprise for few. But, as mentioned earlier this is a good feature since it allows them to archive their favorite video footage.

These updates are available in Instagram version 10.12 for both for iOS and Android users.
