Hoffman has also confirmed that similarly to Vine, Byte will also be a video looping app and not only this, he even called Byte the version 2.0 of Vine.
Dan Hoffman created Vine back in 2012 and fortunately for him, it was acquired in the very same year by the micro-blogging giant Twitter. Since then, the app took off rapidly and as a result of its rapid success, it had more than 200 million active users by the year 2015. The app also gave rise to social media sensations like King Bach, Lele Pons and many others, most of whom have now transitioned to YouTube as a result of the app’s shutting down in 2016.
As of now, not much details are available about Byte, however the real question here is that will Byte be able to achieve the same kind of success that Vine had back in its glory days.
