Vine resurrected in the form of Byte, out now for Android and iOS

Back in 2018, Vine co-creator Dom Hofmann announced that he was working on creating a similar social media application to succeed the popular video-looping app. At that time, it had already been two years since Twitter had killed its famed six-second video sharing platform.

It's a little past the original slated release - spring of 2019 - but the app is finally here. Called Byte, the successor to Vine is out now for the iOS and Android platforms. Much like its predecessor, Byte also focuses on creating and sharing content in the form of looped videos which last six seconds.

Back when Vine was still alive and thriving, there were far fewer social media platforms available with relatively smaller user bases. It will be interesting to see how this revamped new version of Vine performs in the current world of social media which is now overpopulated with similar apps such as TikTok, Likee, Instagram and Snapchat.

The stable version of Byte is rolling out now and can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play Store for Android users and the App Store for iOS users.
