An app for the short-form video sharing service Vine is now available on the Xbox One.

The app, which is the first of its kind to be built specifically for TV, allows Xbox Live members to watch 6 second clips on the big screen. Vine viewing was previously restricted to other devices.

Microsoft said: “Now you can watch and explore the world of short, looping videos, and Xbox One makes them easy to enjoy using Kinect voice or gesture control to play, pause and search through the next or previous Vine.

“You can watch popular Vines, explore channels like Art, Music & Dance, and Comedy, view playlists, and more. In addition, the app can be snapped next to your games, TV or other entertainment apps, making it possible to watch Vines alongside your favourite games or whatever you’re watching.”

The Vine app can be downloaded from the Xbox Games Store.
