Instagram now lets you save live videos for later

Now Instagram lets you streamers save their videos. Once a broadcast has ended, simply click on the Save button on the upper-right corner of the app. The video will still disappear from Instagram itself, but it will be saved onto your camera roll – though there’s nothing stopping you from posting it right back onto Instagram.

Unfortunately, the feature only includes the video itself; comment, likes, and views are gone forever. It’s also worth noting you can only save a video immediately after its finished, so there’s no going back if you forgot to tap the button. But hey, it’s better than nothing.
