Instagram has extended the limit for live streams on the platform from one hour to four hours. It has also introduced a few minor changes to the overall live video experience on the app.

Instagram Live's paid badge is now rolling out to more creators worldwide after its limited testing since earlier this year. It lets fans stand out in the comments, among other perks.
Instagram today announced a fundraising service through its live streaming feature. This allows a host to start a live video where viewers can donate in real time for a nonprofit chosen by the host.
Instagram Live can now be watched on the web as part of the latest change to the Facebook-owned photo and video sharing platform. You can't broadcast live from the web interface, though.
The social media platform has made it possible to invite someone else to join a user's live video broadcast. Once accepted the screen will be split and both users will feature in the live video.
