Vine for Android gets massive update, introduces new camera tools, revining, and more

Vine still really wants your business videos. To prove it, the Twitter-owned service has just pushed out another update for Android devices, calling it their “biggest yet.” And guess what? They’re not lying.

Vine for Android now features a fast capture widget, allowing users to skip an extra click and open the Vine camera straight from the homescreen. Users can also “revine” other users posts, helpful for discovering wacky, crazy, sexy Viners to follow. Swiping over to the Explore tab and you’ll discover 15 new channels for watching (and submitting) Vines to categories like comedy, cats/dogs, family, music, etc..

Vine for Android 1.3.1 update

The biggest addition (for me anyway) is the ability to mute your entire timeline. This is especially useful when browsing Vines in public, or simply watching videos of hot chicks (but couldn’t care less about what they have to say). #Troof. The camera portion of the app was also given some love and now features a grid option, focus button, and ghosting to help frame those stop motion animations everyone goes ape sh*t over (you know who you are).

Just when I was ready to quit Vine, they’ve proven they still have a little fight left in ’em. If they can introduce higher quality video streams (for those of us on fast LTE networks), who knows, maybe I’ll stay.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

    and don’t try to tell me about instagram’s videos, it is not the same thing

    1. Vine is to Twitter as Instagram is to Facebook. Apples don’t mate with Oranges. Then you’d get some weird Appnge or something freakish and then how would it taste? Probably delicious, but that’s not the point. What was my point? Ah forget it.
