Vine for Android updated with new capture widget, channels, and ability to revine posts


Vine for Android has just been updated with several new features, which are very similar to what iOS users received last week. The feature that differentiates the Android update from the iOS update, however, is a new capture widget that you can add to your home screen. From there, simply tap it to go right into the recording interface.

In addition to the capture widget, the update also adds the ability to share or “revine” another user’s post, as well as new tools for recording, including a grid, focus enhancements, and more. Finally, Vine for Android also adds channel support, which means that users can now browse specific topics of interest from the Explore screen, such as Sports, Family, Dogs, Cats, and more.

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

The update is available in the Play Store now.
