Vine application will be transformed into Vine Camera on January 2017.
Vine blog states that the creators are working on the converting the application into a standalone camera. You will be able to save a 6.5-second looping video on a mobile device or share directly on Twitter. The social sharing capability directly on the Vine platform will be removed.
Earlier in October 2016, Twitter announced to cut the support for the Vine app because they thought the app was too costly to keep running because of the arch-rivals Snapchat and Instagram.
Another feature Vine is incorporating is the option to “Follow on Twitter”. Users can connect their Vine and Twitter accounts. Vine followers will get a notification to follow you on Twitter also. Also, users can now download their vines through the app or the website. It states,
“And last but not least, you can now download your Vines through the app or the website. All of your Vines will continue to live on the vine.co website so you can browse all of the amazing videos you created over the years.”
Vine is short-form video hosting service where users can create six-second looping video clips and then share them on Facebook or Twitter through the Vine app. Their services were acquired by Twitter in 2012.
Once the Vine Camera is live, users won’t be able to download their Vines from the app. So, users are advised to save their vines before January 2017.
