We told you back in October that the popular Vine social media app would be shutting down. The app allowed users to make and post short videos.

It turns out the app won’t be completely going away, though the social media platform is still ending. Vine will transition into being a simple camera app called Vine Camera. You’ll still be able to make videos and save them to your phone or directly to Twitter. (Vine is owned by Twitter.)


Twitter also says it is working on a way to allow your Vine followers to follow you on Twitter.  Any saved Vine videos also continue to be saved at the vine.co website.

The Vine Camera app will be available in January.
