Hype is the new buzz which Vine creators have manufactured to replace their fractured video looping app named Vine.
Vine was an online platform that enabled its users to create short looping video clips of 6 seconds for friends and family. Users were allowed to share this video clip on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Its mobile application was available on iPhone, Android, and Windows platforms. Colin Kroll, Rus Yusupov, and Dominik Hofmann in January 2012 launched Vine.
Vine showcased the world that no loop can last forever. The closer of Vine just came out of the blue as there were still many active users of this app. People were still enjoying Vine’s services. But the main reason behind the closure of Vine was due to its less competitiveness with its rivals, who were always upgrading. In effect, Vine was losing its user base drastically, and future of the looping video platform was heading towards uncertainty. That’s why Twitter said it would shut down Vine’s mobile app shortly. But the existing videos will remain on the web, which was quite a relief for Vine lovers.
Recently app industry has been flooded with live streaming apps. Each new app is trying to kill its senior rival by introducing head spinning features and at the same time keeping the interface easy. But there is a big issue that will be the new player Hype(designed by Vine creators), will be able to conquer the neck gripping contest between live streaming apps such as Facebook Live and Periscope.
The creators of Hype look undeterred and unaffected from the competition which their app has to compete in the market of live streaming apps. I have summarized some features which are giving the app an edge over others and making it the real hype of live streaming videos.
