It’s only March, and we’ve already had a busy 2017 on the Twitter Kit team. For this first release of the year, we’re excited to enable smooth looping video for short cinemagraphs on Twitter, including playback of video from the new Vine Camera.

You can update to Twitter Kit v2.3.2 on Android, and v2.8.1 for iOS via Fabric and Cocoapods today!

Some of the most engaging and entertaining Tweets are video, and we see this in the way you’ve embraced them in your apps. Twitter Kit already supports video from the Vine archive, and the new Vine Camera app lets people continue sharing Vines directly on Twitter. The updated Twitter Kit player makes short, looping video a standard medium inside Tweets in your apps.

Please note that Twitter Kit v2.8.1 on iOS will be our final update with support for iOS 8. The next release will require building for iOS 9 and above.

Stay tuned for more updates over the coming months, and your questions and suggestions are always welcome in our developer forum.
