Twitter has launched music on Vine to create and discover short looping videos, for Android and iOS users. “Music has been part of Vine’s culture since the beginning,” the company wrote on its new website. Now, we’re connecting you to the music you love, starting with new ways to discover and create with music on Vine.”
Vine allows users to share six second-long looping video clips. It was acquired in 2012 by Twitter for $30 million, and now has grown to $200 million monthly active user base.
With the launch, now users will be able to explore a new Featured Tracks section, from where they can songs to their own feeds. A music note icon will also be displayed next to Vine that allows users to tap it to see the track info.
“Artists use Vine to make music together, and they extend their collaborations beyond Vine, forming bands, releasing remixes and playing together in person,” Vine added.
New music discovery features are available from Friday on iOS and Android, and the creation tools are only available on iOS for now.
