The creator of Vine, Dom Hofmann, introduced a new video application called Byte, which allows you to shoot or upload six seconds of videos.
After closing the once-popular Vine app in 2017, Dom Hofmann, one of the developers of the app, started working to develop a similar app to Vine. Hofmann, which has been developing its new video platform as a closed beta version for some time, finally launched the application called Byte.
“We look at all of them, but we will start by supporting them with our own revenues and with our own funds,” Hofmann said in a statement that Byte will advertise the creators’ work to pay for their work when the app ends up advertising. We will have more details about how the pilot program will work soon and share the information we have. ”

Equipped with standard social features such as feed, discover page, notifications and profiles, Byte does not currently have features such as re-miscibility, augmented reality filters, transition effects that you can find in apps like TikTok. Like the Vine, 6-second videos can be added to the Byte application.
