The Next Web: Instagram integrates video calls as Shared Stories in most recent bid for your attention

The Next Web: Instagram integrates video calls as Shared Stories in most recent bid for your attention. “Instagram now allows users to broadcast a live Story with a friend. The feature was tested with select users in the past few months, and it’s finally out for everyone to use. Shared Stories allows users to pick anyone who’s currently watching their live broadcast to join in. Once its linked, the screen splits into two and anyone who follows each user will be able to see the combined live Story — it’ll show up as a stacked circle on the Stories timeline.”
