Vine has started rolling out an update for its Android and iOS app versions with new audio and discovery features. The biggest among them is the audio remix feature, which lets users utilise other Vine audio tracks in their own.
To use an audio snippet from a Vine video, users need to simply tap on the three-dot more button at the bottom of the video and then tap on “Make an audio remix”. This would navigate users straight to their device camera and will also show the audio loading bar alongside. Users can then record or import a video and create a Vine using the same audio loaded in the background.
As a part of the Vine app update, users will also get the new discovery feature to search for a Vine video using the same audio clip you downloaded using the audio remix tool mentioned above.
The company blog post also elaborated that, “When someone uses our new audio tool to make a Vine, we display info for the source Vine, just like we do when people use our app to add music tracks to their Vines. This means that you can see the original Vine from which a remix or remake was created.”
To view the source Vine, users can tap the music note under the video, followed by a tap on arrow pointing towards right.
In addition, Vine team has added song metadata as an input to Search. This would give users the ability to view Vines using the same audio track that they have searched for under the ‘Explore’ section.
While the new Discovery features are available for both Android and iOS apps, the audio remix tool is only present for the iOS version.
