Fear not Android users, you can now create six second videos along with your iPhone counterparts. The Vine app is now available for Android.
Vine, which was purchased by Twitter last year, allows users to create six-second videos by starting and stopping recording at any point without having to edit together the video clips – the app does it automatically. Originally only available for iOS users, Vine has racked up over 13 million users, according to Twitter.
The Android version of the app allows users to create videos with automatic playback and sound. It also includes the Explore feature, which allows users to check out what videos are trending, and the Find Friends feature, so users can follow their friends and never miss a video. Not surprisingly, users can also share videos on Twitter, where their followers can watch them within the Tweet.
Unique to the Android version is a zoom feature, which no doubt iPhone users will be salivating over. However, Android users won’t be able to enjoy the search, mentions, hashtag and front-facing camera support features that iPhone users enjoy – at least not right away.
Twitter claims the Vine app with be frequently updated to get the two versions of the app in sync with the same features for all users, no matter the platform. Android users running version 4.0 or later can download the free Vine app in Google Play now.
