Vine for Android receives major update, front facing camera support

Vine for Android receives major update, front facing camera support

When Vine first launched on Android, it came with a bunch of bugs and missing features. Twitter has taken notice and has been updating the app consistently. Vine received an update just this Monday and now the company has rolled out an even larger update.

The biggest change is the ability to record with your front facing camera, which was strangely missing from launch. In comparison, Video on Instagram included front facing camera support from day one.

In addition to front facing camera support, Vine for Android gets “overall speed improvements” as well as other bug fixes. Here’s a list of what’s new:

  • Front-facing camera
  • New upload manager for unsubmitted posts
  • Improvements to settings
  • Improvements to camera loading time and support for more devices
  • Speed improvements overall
  • Bug fixes and UI improvements

There’s still some work to be done with Vine for Android with competition heating up between it and Instagram. We also noticed a bug where Facebook refuses to be linked to Vine, which has been a problem since Monday’s update.
