Vine is back — sort of.

Dom Hofmann, co-founder of the six-second video platform, took to Twitter on Thursday to announce the launch of a “new looping video app” called Byte in spring 2019.

Hofmann floated the idea of bringing back Vine last year after the platform was killed off by Twitter as part of its restructuring. Vine transitioned to the Vine Camera app in January, which uploads the looping videos directly to Twitter instead of to Vine.  

One Twitter user asked Hofmann if Byte was “V2,” referencing Hofmann’s plans to resurrect Vine, to which he responded, “yes.”

Byte is on Twitter and Instagram as @byte_app, and has a website.

Hofmann didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
