Vine launched its Windows 10 app today, the Twitter-owned video app’s first desktop app, allowing users to view and post 6-second videos from tablets and PCs.

The app brings many of most the popular Vine features to the desktop, including channels like Music and Comedy, finding viral clips and just browsing your feed. But you can also post Vines with a simple drag-and-drop gesture, letting you easily share videos that were shot outside your phone.

Vine is also taking advantage of Windows 10 features like dark mode support and Live Tiles. With the latter, you can pin your favorite accounts and see previews of the latest Vines right there in the Start Menu.

The app is launching on tablets and PCs today, but isn’t yet available for Windows 10 Mobile. Vine joins Windows 10 just after Facebook, which brought its main app and Messenger to the platform last week. Instagram was also updated for Windows 10 Mobile. However, Vine parent Twitter was on the Windows 10 train much earlier, bringing their app to the platform back in September.
