Android owners: Welcome to Vine. Starting today, you can begin to shoot, share and watch short looping videos. We’ve been looking forward to this day, and we’re excited to get the app into your hands.
Vine for Android has many of the features that more than 13 million people have grown to love: easy video creation with automatic playback and sound; Explore, where you can discover popular posts and see what’s trending; and Find Friends, where you can find and invite people you know to join. You can also share your posts to Twitter –– people will be able to watch them right within your Tweet. We even added a few features that are unique to Android: zoom (on devices that support it), and much improved offline browsing.
Vine is the best way to see and share life in motion. Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see.
- Unlimited uploads and free
- Instantly post videos on Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook (more coming soon!)
- Find, follow, and interact with people close to you
- Explore trending posts, featured hashtags and editor's picks
- And so much more.
We’re excited to introduce Vine messages, or VMs – a new way to have fun and easy video conversations with friends.
You’ll find the new option “Messages” in the Vine navigation menu.
To send a Vine message, go to the Messages screen or tap the Message button on your friends’ profiles.
Vine messages are one to one. You can send a Vine message to multiple people to start several separate conversations at once.
Found a great Vine video? Simply tap the Share button under the Vine post, then choose "Vine Message" to share it privately. Your friends can respond directly to keep the conversation going.
Vine messages aren’t limited by your Vine contacts, either - you can send a VM to anyone via email or SMS, even if they’re not part of the Vine community.
You can also customize your profile with colors – go to Settings to unlock the full array of options.
This update also includes bug fixes and performance improvements.
