Well, for those who love it, there’s a new feature you’re probably going to love even more. Drum roll, please… Instagram has added a feature to save Live videos!

If you're anything like us, scrolling through your Instagram feed goes a little something like this: cat, baby, eggs Benedict, selfie. It's not a bad assortment, but let's face it, it can get a little predictable. Instagram is great for capturing novel moments — that tiny kitten in the bodega window on your way to work or the sky-written proposal you see on a sunny Sunday in the park — but it's also a means of sharing your vision of the world. So, how do you make your Instagram feed stand out from those of the cat ladies who brunch? We tapped our photo editor and Instagrammer-in-chief, Ida Hariri, for some pointers. Rather than sticking to locales we're all too familiar with, we took to the open road in a Ford Fusion and headed to upstate New York. From a beautifully autumnal cornfield to a shut-down Wild West-themed town, our freewheeling road trip took us to little-known places that were just begging to be documented. Along the way, we learned what makes a solid photo and how to create compelling visual stories from the world around us. Ahead, Hariri's tips on how to make your own Instagram feed shine. 13 Instagram Tips That'll Make Everyone Think You're A Pro

You know, instead of just completely losing a video that might be straight-up comedic gold.

According to Instagram’s blog, starting today, you can save your Live videos to your camera roll. All you need to do is simply tap Save in the upper right corner once your live feed is over. Then tap Done to be able to watch the video over and over again forever. The video will disappear from your app, but not from your life.

© Instagram Of course, don’t get too consumed with how you looked or what you said, because the video was already live. Meaning, the whole world has already seen what you put out there!

And by “whole world,” we mean your followers. And by “followers,” we mean the ones who actually watched.

While you’ll be able to save the actual video to your camera roll, you won’t be able to save the comments, likes, number of viewers or any other live interactions. You’ll just need to commit those to memory.

This is one of many updates Instagram has recently made to its platform and one of many updates to come. To make sure the new feature is available on your phone, update your Instagram app to version 10.12 and then live-stream away!
