What's new on Instagram? Live Video and Disappearing messages that's what | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Instagram have some new features planned with their new update adding live video and disappearing messages.
Now what this means is that while creating an Instagram story you’ll soon be able to swipe over to a new ‘Live’ button, offering a way for users to hop into a livestream. 
The idea is that once someone starts streaming, Instagram sends a notification to the user’s followers, who can then watch and leave comments. One of the comments can be pinned to the top of the feed, or comments can be completely turned off.
Naturally comparisons will be made with Facebook’s Live as they do seem pretty similar without the emoji reactions. The new feature should be out in a few weeks.
Beyond that, Instagram also rolled out disappearing messages. When you press the new messaging icon in the top right corner of the app’s home screen, you’ll be able to privately send a photo or video to people that are following you.
So the battle between Instagram and Snapchat rages on with IG adding more and more features to one-up their rivals.
