One of the features that has been added to imo recently is imo live story feature allowing you to share your moments with your friends in real time. This feature of imo is somewhat similar to Instagram live feature but it has a number of differences. In what follows, I will provide you with all you need to know about this new feature of imo along with how you can start imo live and how you can join others’ live stories.
imo live story
In general, Live Story is, in fact, a kind of story the user shares live and in real time. Live Story can only be recorded live and using a mobile camera and be shared directly while it is being recorded. Your contacts will then open your live story page and connect with you. Users who join your imo live story can send messages and send stickers as well as seeing you online.
As I mentioned before, the live feature of imo is somehow similar to Instagram live feature. But the difference between these two features is that while on Instagram only your followers can join your live story, on imo anyone who uses imo application can join your live story even if they are not in your contacts. So, once you start a live story on imo application, all other imo users will be able to join your live story and send messages and stickers. you can’t limit your imo live story to a limited number of users or contacts.
Considering what I mentioned above, you will also be able to join the live story of any user on imo. In addition, you can also choose to make a video call with one or three users that have joined your live story. This allows you to be able to talk to them directly. In general, a maximum of 196 users can join an imo live story and you can make a video call with at most 3 users.
