Vine updates app with direct message capability


Vine on Thursday rolled out a handy new feature to the Android and iOS mobile app experience. As part of the latest update users can now record and send messages to other Vine users in a private, direct manner. According to the software developers you’ll be able to send to one or multiple people whether in your network or not.

Your messages inbox has two sections: Friends (people you know) and Other (people outside your network).

To help avoid being flooded with spam and unwanted clips, Vine will let users opt to receive messages from only those they follow. Should you opt to allow for all users to send you messages, Vine will split them into in-network and out-of-network.

Rounding things out, Vine now allows for customization of profile colors.

Vine is a free download in a variety of app stores.
