As you’ve probably learnt by now, Vine has shut down its video services. This was confirmed back in October of 2016 where Twitter announced their plans to shutter the service. That being said, it seems that Vine isn’t quite done with video just yet as the platform has just launched a searchable video archive (as reported by TechCrunch) of all the videos that have been uploaded to its website.
What this means is that if you head on over to Vine’s website, you’ll be able to search for videos dating back to 2013 by clicking on one of the year dates. Now when Twitter announced their plans to shut down Vine’s video service, they also told users that they have the opportunity to download their uploaded videos if they wish to keep a copy of it, but with this new searchable archive, it seems that Twitter isn’t completely closing the service.
We should point out that you will not be able to upload new Vine videos, so as far as Vine’s video operations are concerned, it’ll just solely exist as a video archive. Instead in case you forgot, Vine has been changed to a standalone camera app where you can still capture 6 second looping videos, you’ll just have to find another social network to share it on.
In any case if you do want to go back in the archives and dig around for some old Vine classics, you’re more than welcome to do so.
