Twitter announced yesterday that its long-awaited Vine app for Android is now available.
Read on for the lowdown on what features the app has, including one that’s unique to Android (iPhone users, prepare to seethe with jealousy).
In a blog post announcing the app release, Android engineer Sara Haider wrote,
“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. Of course, this is only the beginning –– we have exciting plans for features that could exist only on Android.”
Android users are already getting one unique feature that’s not available for iOS: zoom. Pretty cool.
Vine requires Android 4.0 or higher.
