Vine for Android official

Time to start planning some six-second masterpieces, Android users, because Twitter just announced that Vine is coming to the Google Play Store today. Vine is an app that allows users to record videos up to six seconds in length and then share them with friends. The app has been an iOS exclusive since it launched in Apple's App Store in January 2013, and since then the service has amassed 13 million users.

As a result of the iOS version of Vine having been available for several months already, Twitter says that the Android app won't be perfectly in sync with the iOS version right away. However, the company is promising rapid updates that will bring features like front-facing camera support, mentions, hashtags and the ability share to Facebook. The app is launching with a zoom feature that's currently only available to Android users, and Twitter is teasing that it's got other features planned "that could exist only on Android."

Many Android users have been clamoring for their own version of Vine ever since the iOS version launched earlier this year, and while we've known that Vine for Android was in the works, there was never much said about when the app might actually be released. The wait is finally ending today, and the good news for Android folk is that the app features a Holo design that looks pretty nice. Vine requires Android 4.0 or higher for installation. The app hasn't gone live in the Google Play Store as of this writing, but you'll be able to find it using the Google Play link below once it does.

UPDATE: Looks like Vine is officially live in the Google Play Store. Hit up the link below and get to downloading!
