Instagram wants to be more like Snapchat


Instagram is trying to look like Snapchat. Today, the company announced two new features that will change the way we interact with the application.

The first feature is "Live Video" as part of Instagram Stories. Stories was introduced some months ago, but it seems people wanted even more. Now you can do live videos and share it with all your followers. The video will disappear when the live video ends.


Instagram is also launching "Disappearing photos" for direct messaging. These photos will be deleted after the other users sees it and leaves that conversation, so it won't be there for much time. Overall, these two new features seem like a handy addition to Instagram.
