Only a week after adding search for users and hashtag support, Vine for Android is today getting yet another update that adds some much requested features, such as front-facing camera support.
Additionally, Vine for Android has received a few performance enhancements, making the app as a whole a bit more speedy, especially the camera loading time. There’s also been a new upload manager added for posts that aren’t submitted.
According the change log, Vine for Android now supports more devices, but it doesn’t say which devices specifically. So if you couldn’t get Vine on your device before, it might be worth it to check again. However, Vine can still only be used on devices running Android 4.0 or higher.
There’s been improvements to settings, too, although we didn’t notice much of a difference. You can check out the full change log for yourself:
- Front-facing camera
- New upload manager for unsubmitted posts
- Improvements to settings
- Improvements to camera loading time and support for more devices
- Speed improvements overall
- Bug fixes and UI improvements
Vine for Android launched earlier this month, though, it has a hard battle on its hands, as Facebook’s Instagram recently added video capabilities. Instagram has a much larger userbase than Vine, so it’ll be interesting to see how this battle plays out.
