Vine Introduces Video Messaging System

In case the messaging space wasn’t saturated already, Vine has now thrown it’s proverbial hat into the ring with its latest update that provides for communication beyond video comments. Vine says this update is the most significant improvement it’s made since its launch, and the new messaging system is called Vine Messages. They can be sent to anyone – not just existing Vine members – and consist of Vines sent via the platform, SMS, or email. They’re one-on-one messages, but they can be sent to anybody as traditional text messages or special Vines. Vine is also rolling out a feature to import video from the camera’s roll, largely expanding the type of content users can upload and send out. For the continually expanding messaging app space, it’s another big name crowding out some of the more niche platforms.
