Vine Announces New Music Functions

In a blog post Thursday, the six-second video-sharing social media app outlined its new additions and their benefits.

Vine has announced a number of new music functions that will take affect Friday, allowing users an improved interface posting and experiencing music content. In a blog post Thursday, the six-second video-sharing social media app outlined its new additions and their benefits. 

The new "snap to beat" function will allow users to easily create "perfect" or "seamless" loops with their video posts, trimming videos to create "never-ending music loops" where they just play continuously without any apparent beginning or end. There are also sound effects users can add to enhance their performances. 

"To date, our creation tools have focused on the visual components of your Vines," the blog post reads. "By focusing on how your Vines sound, you can make better Vines, and share new music for the world to uncover."

The app will also highlight new music discovery features, including a "featured tracks" section and a function that adds information like song titles into music posts, so users aren't reliant on the community to find out what some tune is called. 

Vine recently partnered with Billboard to incorporate its popular songs into the Billboard Social 50 chart, adding substance to the trends that are born from the platform.
