Instagram Extends Live Streaming time Limit to 4 hours

Updates rolling out

Longer Time Limit For Live Streams

An update that’s now rolling out to all Instagram users makes it possible to go live for four hours in a single stream.

Previously, the time limit for Instagram live streams was one hour, after which point the stream would immediately cut off.

If users wanted to stream longer they had the option to go live again, but they would have lost all their audience from the last stream.

An extension to the time limit of Instagram live streams gives users the flexibility to stream longer without interruptions.

This brings Instagram in line with Facebook in terms of live stream time limits on mobile devices.
