During the time that we saw Facebook give Instagram a new video feature, it was understandably claimed that Vine was supposedly going to move in amidst the shadow of this development. Traditionally even Vine offers to take short videos and post them to a Twitter and Instagram on the news feed type facilitation. Thus it is notably regarded as Twitter’s own short video social network. Hereupon as we view Instagram’s addition of video along-with its branding as a hugely popular photo service, such a development possesses a chance to potentially kill Vine off for good.
However, this was just a suppositioned aspect that was visually looked as an accidental factor. To ensure that such a thing never surfaces up, Vine has released out a new update to the service’s app. The newly updated app provides newer functionalities along-with improving the existing functionality.
The most notable change that has been implemented is the redesigned camera. The individuals will be provided with the manifestation of a new grid to make it even easier to frame those shots in the manner they like. Additionally there exists a facilitation of ghost tools that gives the users a ghost image of their previous shot. This is a fantastic addition to the current set of features. It is interesting specifically for those people who emphasize on doing stop-motion shooting and Vine is dishing out the resourcefulness for these means.
The individuals have the facility to post their videos to channels. Thereafter, each channel comprises of theme based unit around the category in which the videos can easily fit into fit. Different channels are available, example channel for music or one for comedy. The main focus lies on the discoverability aspect and Vine justifies the claim that such changes help in increasing discoverability. This is simply the ability to re-vine videos i.e., it basically means the same as retweeting tweets. This makes it a differentiable aspect from Instagram and Vine acquiring this feature firstly is some notable development. Surely, this will also trickle down to Instagram over the course of time.
Vine has implemented another beneficial addition with its update. This is provisioning to make your posts private. This aspect is an advantageous utility for the users who don’t want to make their Vines public and like to keep things on the private side.
It is always good to see a healthy competition surfacing up and the rival competitive spirit between Instagram & Vine will surely pave way for producing innovation in various domains.
At present, this update is only available for iPhone users, and it is expected that it will make its way to Android sooner than later.
