After several criticisms pointed out by users, Instagram is (finally) ready to let you see ‘lives’ through the ‘desktop’ version of the social network. Note that only the ability to watch is available, not to start a broadcast itself.
Note that the ability to view live streams was previously exclusive to the mobile version. However, with more people making ‘lives’ in this pandemic period, it seems that Instagram has decided to expand the viewing capacity.
This is not the only feature of the mobile version of Instagram that became available for the desktop version. The ability to send and receive messages can now also be enjoyed on the computer.
