According to a post to the company’s blog, the Vine apps for iOS and Android will now feature “Time Travel,” which gives users the ability to move around different clips that they shot for a Vine before publishing it. That way, if you want to make sure your friend’s awesome dance move gets first billing in your Vine, rather than having to wait all the way until the end to see it.
In addition, the Twitter-owned video company also added support for “Sessions,” the company’s term for saved drafts of a Vine. If you find the perfect 8-second snippet that you want to capture, but don’t want to spend time staring at your phone to get it published, you can save it to post later. As of right now, the Vine app can only save 10 sessions at a time, though, so you can’t put together a local archive of Vines that you don’t want to publish with that feature.
If you want to pick up the new version of Vine, the update is available in the iOS App Store and Google Play store. There’s no word whether these features will be coming to Vine’s upcoming Windows Phone app.
