The day is finally here Droiders! Vine for Android is finally available! Vine is one of the main reasons that I use my iPhone and I am happy to have it on Android. It’s about time.
Vine allows users to capture six second video clips and share them on Facebook and Twitter. The 6 second clips loop, so you have it on constant replay. I’ve seen some pretty creative Vine videos out there.
The Android version will have a special feature, Zoom. I wonder how that will work. I couldn’t wait, so I tried downloading the app from the Google Play Store but it seems that the link is dead.
You can try and download Vine for Android HERE: Vine at Google Play Store
If you don’t already have it for Apple iOS, download Vine HERE: Vine at Apple App Store
Check out how Twitter announced Vine for Android this morning:
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. Oh, and we added a feature that’s unique to Android: zoom.
Though we’ve been very focused on releasing Vine for Android, we’ve continued to release updates and add new features to the iOS app. As a result, the two apps are not perfectly in sync, but that won’t be the case for long. 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. Of course, this is only the beginning –– we have exciting plans for features that could exist only on Android.
