Vine now supports 720p video on iOS, coming soon to Android

Vine - App - iPhone 5

Popular video sharing service Vine now supports clips in high-definition when they are filmed on an iOS device, and Android users will be able to film their own 720p clips “soon.”

“Starting today, the stories you watch and share will look better than ever,” Vine announced in a post on its blog.

“We’ve been working on technical upgrades that support Vines in higher quality… When you watch Vines on our iOS and Android apps, you’ll see these quality improvements — they are rolling out over the coming days.”

To be precise, clips can now be filmed at 720×720 resolution, which is a significant improvement over the previous 480×480 resolution — particularly as most Vine videos are now viewed on high-definition screens, both on mobile and on the web.

While Vine isn’t quite as hot as it once was, the service still has a massive fanbase, with millions of users every day. The Twitter-owned service seems to have already found its winning formula, but support for HD video can only enhance that.

If you have an iPhone, you can start shooting 720p Vine videos right away, while those with Android devices will get the same upgrade “soon.” In the meantime, you can check out some of the first 720p Vines via the source link below.
