Instagram Reportedly Testing Adding Moderator to Live Videos; Stories May Soon Get Like Button

Instagram is planning to bring a new feature that allows users to add a moderator to a live video. At present, only the user who has started the live on the social network can manage it. The upcoming feature for Instagram was first spotted by a notable developer on Twitter. According to him, the feature is in testing phase. Additionally, Instagram is said to be introducing the ability to like Stories. Both features are expected to take some time before they reach the general audience.

Noted developer Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) with a series of mockups on Twitter has suggested that Instagram is working on a new feature that allows creators to add a moderator when they do live videos. However, the screenshot shared by Paluzzi shows that the social media platform will let the creator add only one moderator to a live video from their list of ‘who’s watching’. At present, only the host who has started the live can manage it. The main purpose of a moderator is to help the live host manage the comments. With the upcoming functionality, the moderator will be able to turn off comments, requests to go live, questions, and more, as per a report by 9to5Mac.
