The micro-blogging website has now addressed this issue with an update in the form of Vine for Android version 1.2.0. The other major improvements that this update has brought are:
The biggest improvement in speeds seems to be in the camera, which now loads faster than before.
Twitter had launched Vine app for iOS in January 2013. Vine lets users record six-second video clips, which can then be seamlessly embedded within the tweets.
The Android version of Vine had got a minor update last week as well. This update added search, mentions, hashtags, and Facebook-sharing.
On June 20, Vine co-founders Dom Hofman and Rus Yusupov had posted videos to give a glimpse of changes that might be introduced in the near future. Based on one of these Vine videos, it appears that the company is looking at revamping the design. The new design will let users see larger, full-screen videos.
Another interesting addition that may come with future Vine updates is the option to reuse older video clips. Currently, users need to capture a fresh video clip every time they are looking to upload something to Vine.
Recently, Facebook added Vine-like features to its popular photo-sharing app Instagram. Instead of restricting users to 6 seconds, like Vine does, Instagram lets users share 15-second videos.
