Who said binge-watching is just for TV? Twitter-owned Vine this week introduced a new way to view an entire channel with a single click.
Vine videos usually play over and over in six-second loops until you stop them or scroll away. But as Vine says in a blog post, "people love to go through a channel or watch an account from start to finish." That's now easier than ever with the service's new "Watch" button. Tap it, and Vine will play through a channel's entire library of six-second videos one after another, without the loops, no scrolling required.
You can still replay any videos by clicking and holding the screen, before the app moves on to the next one.
Within a user's channel, tap "Posts" to choose how to view their Vines: oldest to newest, newest to oldest, or by what's popular.
The new function, available on iOS and Android, is reminiscent of Vine's TV Mode feature that launched on the Web in early 2014. Online users can click the television icon in the top right for a larger view and continuous play.
Similarly, Snapchat last month unveiled Auto-Advance Stories: Once you finish a Story, the next one automatically begins; swipe to skip ahead, pull down to exit.
The updated Vine app is now available in the App Store and Google Play.
