Twitter’s short video sharing Vine app is no longer an iOS exclusive, as the Vine for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store.
In case you don’t know what Vine is, you’ll have to know the app lets users record and share videos that aren’t longer than six seconds. That’s pretty much all you need to know about it before you start using it.
As the company explains it, Vine for Android is not perfectly in sync with Vine for iOS when it comes to features, but the Android app “has many of the features that more than 13 million people have grown to love.”
Here’s what’s currently included in the current version of the app:
- “easy video creation” – automatic playback and sound
- support for unlimited free uploads
- Explore – discover popular posts and trends
- Find Friends – find and invite people to join
In the near future, the app will get various updates that will bring new features to the Android app including front-facing camera support, hashtags, mentions, search support and Facebook integration.
In order to play with Vine, you need Android 4.0 or later running on your device and at least 18MB of available storage. The application is available as a free download from the Play Store.
