Vine Officially Dies On January 17 — But Vine Camera Will Take Its Place, Whatever That Means

no title

Gone but not forgotten!

Social media is an ever-changing landscape, which means every now and then we have to say goodbye to a once loved platform.

Unfortunately for fans of GIFs w/ sound, we’re hearing through the grapevine that the time has come for Vine!

The company officially announced that their 6-second video looping app will be discontinued on January 17 — meaning you have just under two weeks to download and save all those videos you’ve made over the years!

With that said, after Jan. 17, the site will become an archive of Vines so users can still browse videos created for the original application.

Don’t just take our word for it, though… the video sharing company took to Twitter to share an update on Thursday, saying:

But if you’re still hanging on to the mostly dead/slightly alive app, fear not… because a similar service is taking its place!

Apparently, the company is rebranding the app to what they’re calling Vine Camera, which will allow users to make 6.5 second videos to save or post to Twitter — and yes, they’ll still loop.
