Are you a fan on Vines? Not the swinging kind! I mean the small video kind of either sheer nonsense, boredom or outright bizarre! Well, starting now you can watch the six-second videos on the big screen with the addition of the Vine app on Xbox One. Available to Xbox Live members*, Vine on Xbox One provides a Vine viewing experience for your TV that brings you one of the world’s most used video apps alongside your favourite games and entertainment.
This is the first Vine viewing experience built specifically for the TV, giving you access to Vines directly in your living room, or wherever you have your X1 situated of course. Now the Vine app on the Xbox One makes them easy to enjoy using Kinect voice or gesture control to play, pause and search through the next or previous Vine or, in my case, begging it to stop as my daughter shows me the twelfth Vine in a row with something I have no reference to.
You can watch popular Vines, explore channels like Art, Music & Dance, and Comedy, view playlists, and more. In addition, the app can be snapped next to your games, TV or other entertainment apps, making it possible to watch Vines alongside your favourite games or whatever you’re watching.
*The Vine app is currently available in these countries – Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.
(Anywhere else and you’re going to have to watch your six second videos the old fashioned way!)
