Vine Includes A One-On-One Private Messaging Feature.

Twitter has recently updated their Vine application to support direct video messaging along with other features, such as sharing to non-Vine users, quick reply, and a color selection for the user profiles.

Direct Messaging.

These features will allow users to view the video and chat directly through the same screen. User will be able to create a new Vine message by head towards the message section, recording a video and sending it. User can send these recorded video messages up to multiple users at a time, although the conversations will still be one-on-one. This means a separate thread will be created for each user whom has received the sent video. Sharing a video only takes the simple step of tapping on the ‘Share button’.

Even so, user can also send Vine message to user from their address book, even if the receiver does not have Vine, according to sources.

 “Send a Vine message to one friend, or select a few to start multiple 1-to-1 conversations. Send a video to anyone via email or SMS, even if they’re not on Vine,” states the official Vine website.

Replying through the use of Vine message has been made far simpler. Users will simple have to tap and hold the camera button, send a quick video response, and finally release the button once done. Furthermore in order to reply quicker, Vine user will be able to access ‘Messages’ by simply swiping the left from the applications home screen and send messages from the message drawer, profiles and feeds. The latest version of Vine also allows the user to choose various color selection, to spruce up their profiles, through the ‘Setting’ option.s

Vine has been updated and made available for iOS user via iTunes app store and Android users via Google Play Store.

Although, when there is a particular object, which user want it to come out as perfectly possible, they will simply tap onto the center of the screen then press an hold where they wish to focus, As the object becomes clearer, the exposure level will be adjusted accordingly.
