Popular photo and video sharing platform, Instagram is reportedly working on a new feature that allows the hosts to add a moderator to their live video.
In the past, only the user who started the live video or the host could manage the activities on the live video. However, now the moderator will have the permission to report comments and remove the viewers from the ongoing Instagram live videos. Furthermore, the moderator can turn off the comments for a viewer.
Instagram announced the new moderator feature addition via its Twitter handle.
When the feature will be rolled out generally, creators can add a moderator within their stream and continue their stream.
Additionally, this feature will help tackle cyberbullying. For instance, the creator can continue with the stream while the moderator reports such offensive comments and remove viewers from live video.
To add a moderator during a live stream, you need to click tap the three dots within the comment bar. The moderator can be picked from the suggested accounts list (usually the people with whom you interact the most) alternatively you can search for a specific account with the help of a search bar. As we mentioned above, the moderators can help the live host in managing the comments. Also, the moderators can report and remove comments and viewers from the Instagram live session.
The previous month, Instagram rolled out the Take A Break feature and added the 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour and 2-hour options for its users.
