Twitter’s Increasingly Popular Vine App Is Now Available For Your Android


Twitter’s increasingly popular Vine-six-second video and creativity app is finally available for your Android phone. Starting today, you can begin to shoot, share and watch short looping videos. Vine is one of the best ways 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.

Twitter acquired Vine late last year and the app has quickly shot up as one of the most downloaded social apps in recent months (and popular, Twitter reports 13 million users).

The app allows 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. Oh, and we added a feature that’s unique to Android: zoom.

Features of the Vine Android app

• 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

According to Twitter, over the coming weeks, you’ll see frequent updates with new features –– including front-facing camera, search, mentions and hashtags, and the ability to share to Facebook –– as well as bug fixes and performance improvements.

Android owners running 4.0+ can download Vine from Google Play.
