A tweet from Vine on Friday revealed that the video-sharing app has an update for those using Android 4.0 or higher. Among the new features is a push notification so you can see new ‘likes’, comments, and mentions. Any public post can now be shared to Facebook or Twitter. And of course, there is the usual bug fixes and improvements.
For those of you who don’t keep up with the social media, Vine is an app that allows you to create 6 seconds of video in a looping feed that you can tag and then post. Owned by Twitter, consider this the video version of the social messaging app, if the messages continued to repeat over and over again.
Vine is currently running into competition from Instagram which is now allowing 15 seconds worth of video to be posted on its site. That means instead of viewing static photos of someone’s lunch, we can also watch it being devoured as it happens.
