For anyone still rocking Vine, you will be happy to learn that the company has introduced a direct messaging feature, known as Vine Messaging, into the application. Basically, you can make private Vines and then send them to your friends that you have added onto your friends list. You can also send Vines to people you are not friends with, but that might come off as a little stalkerish.
In addition to Vine Messages, users can update their profile with themes, which will add a few flavors of color if you so choose. To top it off, the app received a few bug fixes and performance increases.
If you still haven’t dropped Vine in favor of Instagram, go grab the update.
