Vine co-creator Dom Hofmann has launched a new app.



Byte is the follow-up video-looping service, which comes over two years after Twitter shut down Vine, and is set to be unleashed in spring 2019.

Announcing the new venture, Dom tweeted: "our new looping video app is called byte. launching spring 2019 (sic)"

Vine was founded in June 2012, and hosted six-second-long looping video clips.

It was acquired by the micro-blogging site in October 2012, before being closed in 2016.

In a statement at the time, Vine said: "Since 2013, millions of people have turned to Vine to laugh at loops and see creativity unfold. Today, we are sharing the news that in the coming months we'll be discontinuing the mobile app."

The app is responsible for the launching the careers of pop star Shawn Mendes and YouTuber Logan Paul, to name a few.

No further details are available on the product at the this time.

However, Dom had previously spoken about working on a new version of Vine.

In May, he took to Twitter to apologise for the "delay" in the apps' development.

He wrote at the time: "I'm very, very sorry for the disappointment.

"If it's any consolation, I think it would have been even more disappointing if this service had been developed and released incorrectly, which is where we were headed. I'd like for us to get it right."
