The latest update for Vine introduces a new feature ‘Watch’ button allowing users to watch multiple videos on a particular channel or account.

The entertainment platform on Wednesday announced the launch of Watch button, letting you play all Vines on your favorite channel with a simple tap.

“Our latest design introduces a ‘Watch’ button that lets you kick back and see the story of a channel as Vines automatically play back to back,” says Vine. “People love to go through a channel or watch an account from start to finish. You can now do that with just the tap of a button, without having to manually scroll through individual posts.”

Vine also simplified the way of sorting the clips, just by tapping ‘Posts’ on a channel, it sorts Vines from oldest to newest, newest to oldest, or by what’s popular.

Vine clips are only 6 seconds long, but they can entertain people, who may want to see more videos from the creator. The latest watch button may encourage content makers to produce more Vines so that people can watch them automatically one after the other.

Both iOS and Android Vine apps have been unlocked with the new feature. The Vine app for iOS weighs just over 65 MB and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch running on iOS 8.0 or later.

According to the Google Play Store, the weight and software version compatibility for the Vine app varies depending on device.
