Vine for Android gets massive update


Yesterday Vine the Twitter-owned service pushed out another update for Android devices, calling it their “biggest yet.” And guess what? They’re not lying.

Vine for Android now features a fast capture widget, allowing users to skip an extra click and open the Vine camera straight from the homescreen. Users can also “revine” other users posts, helpful for discovering wacky, crazy, sexy Viners to follow. Swiping over to the Explore tab and you’ll discover 15 new channels for watching (and submitting) Vines to categories like comedy, cats/dogs, family, music, etc..

The biggest addition is the ability to mute your entire timeline. This is especially useful when browsing Vines in public, or simply watching videos. The camera portion of the app was also given some love and now features a grid option, focus button, and ghosting to help frame those stop motion animations.

Just when I was ready to quit Vine, they’ve proven they still have a little fight left in ‘em. If they can introduce higher quality video streams (for those on fast LTE networks), who knows, maybe I’ll stay.

What’s in this version:

This update to Vine is our biggest yet!


Browse or submit your posts to 15 new channels


Share your favorite posts with all your followers on Vine in one tap


Instantly jump to the Vine camera right from your home screen


Shoot with style using the new focus, grid, and ghost tools

Other updates:

• A new mute button in the menu

• Performance improvements
