Currently, most of the people go to Instagram Live stream through mobile phones
So Instagram has introduced a new feature called Instagram Live Producer.
Through this, creators will be able to live stream to Instagram through the desktop.
So using software like OBS or Streamlabs makes it possible to stream live easily.
Instagram users can start Instagram Live from their smartphones and there was no ability to stream live through desktop until now, but now with this newly introduced tool called Instagram Live Producer, we can live stream on Instagram like on other streaming platforms like Twitch and YouTube. Ability is available.
This new feature allows creators to use additional cameras and additional microphones for their live streams if desired and also has the opportunity to add custom graphics, titles and cards to the stream.
