  2. Tap Start Live Video.
  3. Tap at the bottom to invite friends or group members to watch your live video. Once your friends are watching, tap then select a friend from your viewers list and tap Add. Your friend will receive a notification to join your live video.
  4. You can also add a friend or group member who has requested to join your live video by tapping and tapping Approve next to their name.
  5. When you want to remove the person from your live video, tap on your friend's video.
While you’re live, friends and group members can also request to join your video with your approval.
