The Vine App is slated to shut down on the 17th of January, 2017. This news had already been announced earlier and had come as a major shock to users. However, Vine has now announced on Twitter that there will be an altered version.
The Vine App will now officially shut down on the aforementioned date. It will then be converted into the Vine Camera version. With this camera-based app, users can create looping videos of approximately 6 seconds each.
These can now be uploaded to Twitter quite easily with the help of this altered Vine app. GameSpot reports that there will also be another feature called “Follow On Twitter”. This feature will help all creators keep their followers intact. This will remain even when the app is shut down officially.
Will All The Features Be Retained?
However, the altered app will skip quite a few features which are present in the Vine app now. These include the ability to see other Vines through the app itself. You cannot download old Vines as well. This will come into effect once the discontinuation of the app is complete. However, Vine’s website will still give you a chance to view old Vines through its archive.
Vine had earlier announced the making of Vine Camera however the official announcement has now been made. 9 to 5 Mac states that these videos can be saved directly to the camera roll as well with the Vine Camera.
Other Details That You Need to Know
However, Vine community sharing will be something that is missed by users. This will majorly be a creation based offline app for users. You can download the app from the Android PlayStore or even from the iOS App Store.
Vine.co will then become a clip archive after the 17th of January. All videos which are 6.5 seconds or even smaller, will loop on Twitter once the app shuts down. This will help preserve one of the best known features of this platform.
