Vine Update Brings Video Drafts & New Clip Editing Options

Vine for Android Header

Vine received quite a hefty update in the Google Play Store yesterday, furnishing it with two very useful new features, and a handful of the usual bug fixes and stability improvements – designed to make its user’s experience with the app as seamless and fluid as possible.

The first new feature the upgrade brings is called “Sessions,” and is essentially a very basic drafts folder for incomplete, complete or edited videos. Users will now have the ability to crop sections from published Vine’s in addition to being able to save completed Vine’s for later.

However, due to the social network’s pretty high user base, users will be limited to storing up to 10 videos at a time. The Sessions section can be accessed by tapping on a new distinctive “save” icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the capture window.

The second new feature that users will be able to enjoy is called “Time Travel,” this provides “Viners” with a brand new way to edit the Vine they are currently working on. Time Travel can be used at any time during the editorial process, user’s simply have to tap the green progress bar and scroll back through their clips to rearrange them. Although this feature may not be used when using Vine’s built-in basic editing tool, it will be extremely useful when user’s need to re-shoot any section of a scene.

The full changelog can be seen below:

  • We’ve made some incredibly powerful additions to the Vine camera.
  • Sessions — Save any post and come back to it later by tapping the new icon in the bottom right corner of your camera. You can maintain up to 10 open sessions at any time.
  • Time Travel — Remove, reorganize, or replace any shot at any time. Just tap the green bar while you’re shooting or “Edit” while you’re previewing.
