Vine, the free platform that allowed users to create six-second mini-videos and share them on social network services, returns and has a new name: "Byte".
The new name was announced last year by Vine Dom Hofmann, co-creator of Vine; two years after the closure of the latter because Twitter had decided to tighten the shutter, the successor's app for iOS and Android is available, and this also allows you to create short videos (always six seconds) to be played in a loop.
The interface of the new app – on the witch of TikTok – allows you to scroll through the videos one after the other, scrolling from top to bottom.
Will Byte be able to get noticed in the crowded space of services for sharing mini-videos? Winning in this sector is not easy with competitors such as TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat and others, popular and popular among the youngest.
today were bringing back 6-second looping videos and a new community for people who love them.
