Vine for iOS and Android gets an update bringing Private Messaging

Vine has released an upgrade to both its iOS and Android Apps, taking the latest version to v2.0. The update brings private messages to both platforms.

Vine’s private messaging feature revolves around adapting the core purpose of the app, in this case stitched-together 6-second video clips, for private chat. Users are now exposed to a new section of the app, which shows their entire contact list, even those not using Vine.

Unlike Instagram Direct, which relies entirely on photos and videos, Vine Messages encourages text sharing, too, much like any traditional messaging channel. Vine Messages, or VMs for short, generate the same filming UI as before — which has been altered slightly on both iOS and Android — and, once finished, the message can be sent to one or multiple users.
