Welcome to our channel where you learn something new every day. Today, we will show you how to find and watch live streams on Instagram, specifically the random live streams of people that you don’t know or recognize. It used to be easy to find them, but Instagram now wants users to engage with others, which means following or knowing that they are live before accessing their profile and watching their live stream.

But no worries, we’ve got you covered. We will show you how to access the live section on Instagram and watch random live streams. First, access your explore page and tap on the search bar at the top of the screen. Type in “IGTV” and access the hashtag. It will show you a bunch of posts with the IGTV icon. Tap on one of the videos and you should see a button at the bottom left corner of the video that says “Watch IGTV video”. Tap on it and it will open up the video inside the IGTV platform.

After the video opens up in the IGTV platform, there is a button that says “Browse IGTV” at the bottom of the screen. Tap on it and it will send you to the discover page for IGTV videos. The first thing you should see on the page is the “Live Now” section. Tap on the blue button that says “See All” and you will see a list of all the live streams in your area. You can scroll through them and watch whatever you want by tapping on it.

If you want to refresh the live streams, simply close the Instagram application and re-access it again to redo the trick. That’s how you find and watch random live streams on Instagram. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments. We are always happy to help.
