If host agrees to let the person join the live stream, a confirmation comes in this regard. Soon after, the screen splits. Viewers joining the streaming can leave the session at any time.

Instagram Live video hosts who stream the session can see notifications for requests to join. They can tap the View button to allow or deny those requests. Hosts can know the number of requests they received with two smiley faces. Tapping that icon allows them to accept requests or invite other viewers. Host can remove guest(s) at any time.

The new feature is now available with version 24 of the Instagram application for iOS or android.
