Once the live streaming ends on Instagram, users will get an option to “Share to IGVT”. Selecting that option will save the video on IGTV. However, the comments and stickers will not be carried forward to IGTV. Users will also have the option to download the video or delete the video.

Instagram has recently announced new features to combat cyberbullying. The company has rolled out a feature that lets users delete and manage up to 25 comments at once. Users can also block or restrict accounts in bulk. To enable this feature on iOS, users need to tap on a comment and then tap on the dotted icon in the top right corner. Android users need to press and hold a comment and then tap on the dotted icon.

The company is also rolling out a new feature that will allow users to choose who can tag or mention them on Instagram. Users can choose everyone, only people they follow or no one to be able to tag or mention them in a comment. Soon Instagram will start testing pinned comments that will allow users to pin a select number of comments to the top of their comments thread.
