The company announced today on Twitter that its Android app has been updated to version 1.1, and in the process has gained new features like the ability to share to Facebook, search for users and hashtags and also clear the app's cache. The full version 1.1 changelog is as follows:

  • Search for users and hashtags
  • Share to Facebook
  • Improvements to capture speed, quality, and audio/video synchronization
  • Clear cache option available in Settings
  • Other bug fixes and UI improvements

Sharing to Facebook is a big addition, especially after the Facebook-owned Instagram added video to its service, and the various other enhancements ought to help users improve the overall quality of their Vines.
