Vine introduced a new ‘loop count’ feature to its website and Android/iOS apps on Tuesday, revealing how many times a video has been looped. No word yet on whether it will be arriving for Windows Phone users. It’s an obvious feature to introduce for a service that has burgeoned in popularity over the past year, and apes other platforms such as YouTube which reveal at a glance how many times a particular skit has been viewed. The numbers update in real time too, which will give a good reflection of how many people are watching it concurrently. It’s also worth noting here that if one person watches a video on loop 10 times in a row, this will count as 10 loops – it’s not per-click, or per-viewer. On the Web version, for example, you can see the magic number at the bottom, along with the other pertinent background information.
