Vine is Now Available for Android

Twitter’s popular video sharing app Vine is now available for Android.

The app, which lets users make 6 second videos and share them to their social networks, launched for iOS devices this past January. Since then, the app has more than 13 million users.

The new Android app has most of the features of the iOS app — users can create and share short looped videos to Vine or Twitter, as well as follow friends and check out the videos of other makers.

The Android and iOS apps are not identical. For example, the Android app has a unique zoom feature that has yet to hit iOS. Here is more from the Twitter blog:

Over the coming weeks, you’ll see frequent updates with new features –– including front-facing camera, search, mentions and hashtags, and the ability to share to Facebook –– as well as bug fixes and performance improvements. Of course, this is only the beginning –– we have exciting plans for features that could exist only on Android.
