Biggest Update Yet Swings to Vine, Introduces Channels, "Revining," and More
First and foremost, the updated Vine app introduces a redesigned camera with a new grid, focus, and ghost tools to make shooting videos easier. Once you record a short video, you can then submit posts to (or browse) 15 channels in the Explore screen. Some of these include comedy, music, and nature, each of which has its own theme and Popular feed.
Another new feature is the ability to "revine," or share other people's posts with your followers via a single tap. Alternately, you can now protect your posts, which means that only the people you approve to follow you can see them.
All of the updated features are available now on iOS. Protected posts will come to Android later today, and the rest of the updates will make their way to Google's open source platform sometime next week.
