Instagram, with its latest update, now allows live streamers to add moderators to their Instagram live streams. These moderators can help users to filter out spam accounts, remove viewers from living, and report foul commenters. The social media giant tweeted from its official Twitter handle letting everyone know about the upcoming addition.

Now Add Moderators on Instagram Live

Creators can toggle this option by clicking on the three dots in the comment section during a live session. This will open a list of accounts, and creators can choose one of them to be the moderator of the live session. If the desired account does not show up in the list, creators can use the search bar to search for preferred accounts.

The live feature became a part of Instagram in 2016 and has been actively used since then. Instagram might be a little late to the party of moderators on live streams. Moderators and options to moderate responses can help the creators maintain a positive and interactive space for their audience. There have been instances where things have got ugly on Instagram live streams.

Instagram's sister company Facebook allows users to add mods to their streams, along with tools and options to remove trolls from live streams. The company is on its way to monetizing live streams on the platform, and the addition of moderators and supporting tools can help in keeping the community away from toxicity.

Lastly, these options will keep the creator as the center of attention during the live, and will not divert the attention of the audience towards any distracting or off-topic comment on the stream. This feature can be promising for Instagram live creators, and for more such promising articles, keep an eye on Techbuner.
