Instagram is getting Live Rooms, a feature that allows four people to live stream at the same time.
Previously, users could only add one other user to a live stream.
The feature will be available worldwide 'soon'.
When users want to start a Live Room, they must first start a live stream.
Then they can invite up to three people to participate in the live stream.
Users can also ask themselves whether they can participate in a live stream.
With the additional live users, Instagram hopes that the users will come up with more live applications.
The platform mentions examples of a talk show, a jam session, or more interactive sessions with followers.
The idea is that you can soon, for example, invite two followers in a live session to have a conversation with them.
Instagram also promises to work on better moderation features.
The company does not yet cite concrete examples of this.
Instagram does say that if one of the live users has blocked someone, that blocked person cannot participate in a live session.
The user who starts a Live Room can also block comments.
Live Rooms is probably Instagram's answer to Clubhouse.
This app is gaining popularity and allows people to talk to each other through live audio.
Several people can also speak at the same time in Clubhouse.
Instagram's parent company Facebook is reportedly working on its own version of Clubhouse.
Competitor Twitter has also planned something similar.
