New ways to discover and watch Vines
We’ve got a new way to discover Vines in our iPhone app: you can now swipe left on any post to see more Vines.
In October, we introduced the first version of our recommendation engine to help people quickly find Vines. Since then, we’ve been trying new kinds of recommendations and ways to access them. We’re excited for you to use this feature as we continue to build on it and make it better.
We are also bringing Vine to the Apple Watch.
Our Apple Watch app provides two feeds: Favorites and Featured. In Favorites, you can watch posts from the creators you’ve selected as a Favorite. In Featured, you’ll see Vines that have been hand-selected across channels like Comedy, Music and Sports. And just like our mobile apps, you can like and Revine directly from Apple Watch.
To get Vine on your Apple Watch, be sure you have the latest version of Vine. Then open the Watch app on your phone, find “Vine” and enable “Show App on Apple Watch”.
See your account’s total loops and quickly access Vine right from the watch face with our complication.
Here’s how to add our complication to your Apple Watch face:
Press firmly on the screen to select a watch face. Choose one with complications (we love the Modular face), then tap “Customize”. Select the space where you want to see your account’s loops, and scroll through the various options to find “Vine”.
When we set out to build Vine for the Apple Watch, we focused on making sure that you can quickly access the content on Vine that is most important to you — accounts that you have selected as a Favorite and posts that are getting lots of views. We hope you like it.
