Vine's founder Don Hofmann shared a logo for "V2" last December suggesting that a sequel to Vine was in the works, and now nearly a year later, we know what it'll be called and when we'll be able to play around with it. If you're still mourning its loss, you'll be pleased to hear that the Vine founder is making another app. The original creator today announced his new looping video app byte is definitely coming in 2019. Vine transitioned to the Vine Camera app in January, which uploads the looping videos directly to Twitter instead of to Vine. It blew up in popularity and some Viners even gained worldwide fame due to their popular Vines. By 2013, the platform took off and had almost 200 million active users in 2015. It gained huge popularity and was acquired by Twitter in 2013 but was unceremoniously discontinued late in 2016 amid strong competition from Snapchat and Instagram. Despite the name change, this is a proper Vine successor.

More specific details havent been unveiled like: How long can the videos be? But it'll be interesting to see if Byte can be as popular as Vine and give a platform to social media stars.
