The new feature also you to send live videos that you’re watching as well. To do this, simply tap the direct icon at the bottom of the screen once you start the live and this option will also be available when you’re going live with a friend which is another feature that Instagram rolled out a while back.

Your friends will be able to view the live video in their Direct inbox and once the live ends, they will see a message telling them the video has ended. You can also disable the option to send your live videos in Direct in your stories settings, and if your account is private, only your followers will see the live video. You can also send the live videos to a friend in Direct the same way. This latest feature is available for both Android and iOS.
