On December 12, Instagram rolled out Live Video for Instagram Stories for users all over the United States. That’s right, you can now live-stream Stories, and send notifications to your followers that you’re doing it. But how do you turn off notifications for Instagram Live videos? Notifications can be a handy way to make sure that you don’t miss any live videos you want to see (especially since they disappear when they are done), but all of those messages can be really annoying if you’re not interested in them. Thankfully, it’s really easy to turn notifications on and off, depending on how informed you want to be about what people in your feed are posting.
If you’re one of those who prefer not to be notified about unimportant this on your phone, you would have already definitely found the new Instagram Live Video notification bothersome. With almost everyone going live on Instagram lately, it is becoming increasingly distracting trying to dismiss the live video notifications every time it comes up. Who wants to check every unimportant videos all day anyway?
