Vine, the popular social network that lets you share 6-second videos with your followers, has just got a new update on both Android and iOS, which brings a couple of much-wanted features — the ability to save drafts and video-editing before publishing.
“Vine was built for one purpose: to make it easy for people to capture life in motion and share it with the world. That is the reason we built the Vine camera, and it’s why we continue to improve upon and build new tools for your creations, nurturing the balance between power and simplicity that you’ve come to expect from us,” the company said in a blog post.
The Sessions feature lets you save a Vine as a draft without publishing it. At any point, you can save up to 10 sessions in Vine. Instead of hitting publish, in the bottom-right corner of the app, you’ll find a new icon you can tap to save a Vine.
Vine works by letting you tap and hold the record button to shoot small sequences of footage, totalling to six seconds. Time Travel now lets you delete, replace or shuffle the order of any shot before you publish your Vine. Tap the green bar from the camera while you’re shooting, or tap ‘Edit’ when you’re previewing a post.
Unfortunately, the new Time Travel feature does not bring the ability to upload videos edited elsewhere, which is one of the benefits offered by Facebook’s service in the battle of Vine vs Instagram.
But hopefully these new updates will make it easier to create and share videos, and lead to some creative Vines that you can check out.
