Vine, the once-popular, now-defunct video-looping app, may be making a comeback as Byte.
Hoffman wasn’t immediately available for comment but tweeted about the beta test Monday. Hoffman also included a video showing what Byte’s interface will look like.
“The Byte beta we’ve been running with friends and family “feels” exactly like the Vine Friends and Family beta, down to the weird but appealing randomness of the videos. That’ll change as we expand, but it’s a pretty good sign,” he tweeted.
Twitter bought Vine in 2012 but. Hoffman announced a potential replacement, Byte, the following year with a spring 2019 release.
