Vine Rises From The Dead To Become A Camera App
After flirting with death for a while, Vine is back. But it's not what it used to be.
The former Vine app will now be known as Vine Camera.
The new Vine Camera app will still allow users to shoot and record 6-second looping videos. The main difference, according to reports, is that the new app will only require low-maintenance and that the large community of Viners will be gone.
Team Vine and Twitter made the announcement in a blog post:
"In January, we're transitioning the Vine app to a pared-down Vine Camera. With this camera app you'll still be able to make six-second looping videos, and either post them directly to Twitter or save them to your phone."
Twitter will also be moving the user base of the former Vine to Twitter. That way, fans can still follow Vine stars through Twitter. That said, the new app can still be a venue for prospective Vine stars to get a following.
Twitter advises fans to stay tuned and wait for "Follow on Twitter" notifications to get more details about the move.
When Twitter announced in October that it was shutting down Vine, not a few voiced their displeasure. Some of the app's regular users posted their last goodbyes on Vine before it went down.
But Twitter handled the situation well. It said that the videos that have already been made will not be deleted. In fact, the Vine website, vine.co, will remain and still contain the old videos. Users of the Vine Camera app may still download their videos to the website aside from posting them on Twitter.
Twitter has also provided users who wish to leave Vine with options to transfer their content through exporting tools from Android and iOS apps. This will be possible until the Vine Camera app is launched.
The new Vine Camera app will be available in January next year.
