Not that long ago, Microsoft revealed that the official Instagram, Xbox Video, and Vine apps would make their appearance on Windows Phone “soon.” It looks like the time is now for the official Vine app, which is set to roll out later today.
For those that don’t know, Vine is a popular service owned by Twitter that allows users to create, post, and share short video clips. Each of these video clips have a maximum length of six seconds. Since Windows Phone did not have an official Vine app, many users have resorted to using third-party apps.
No longer will that be the case! The official Vine app will roll out later today. “Tap and hold the screen to create short, looping videos with sound. Camera tools, like grid and ghost, help you shoot like a pro, and, of course, you can put yourself in the action with your front-facing camera. Check out Explore to view popular posts, browse through channels, or see what’s trending, and discover which of your friends are already on Vine with Find People,” Vine stated on their official website.
Vine for Windows Phone 8 also gets an exclusive feature that lets you pin your favorite Vine accounts to your homescreen, and use Pivots to easily switch between your apps.
