Photo-sharing platform Instagram announced on Tuesday it has extended the time limit for live streams from 60 minutes to four hours. The change is global and applies to all Instagram users.
The reason behind the move, Instagram said, is helping creators — yoga instructors, musicians, artists, cooks, and the like — to do longer sessions with their audience without being interrupted every hour. It is also adding the option to archive live broadcasts for 30 days.
