Edit your Vine’s caption

It is now possible to edit a caption for a Vine you just posted, but only “for a brief period after you post,” according to the company. One of the most often requested feature additions, the ability to edit your Vine’s caption is available by tapping the ellipsis icon right after you’ve published your Vine. This feature is available in Vine for Android starting today, and is “coming soon” to iOS.

The app is localized in English, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Turkish.
