Twitter announces Vine for Android

apps Updated: Jun 04, 2013 11:32 IST

Twitter has, on June 3, announced that its embedded video service Vine is now available on Android.

The service, which enables users to record a six-second video and then embed it in a Tweet, is now available via the Google Play store.

The video service requires Android 4.0 or higher to run and though features found on the iOS app are currently missing from its Android counterpart, such as search and front-facing camera support, these features are expected to arrive on the Android app in the coming weeks.

One feature Android Vine users will have that their iOS-using friends currently don't is the ability to zoom. Android users could even perhaps be getting the better deal in the long run with Twitter stating in their release "we have exciting plans for features that could exist only on Android."
