Dom Hofmann, creator of the Vine short video application, promises in 2017 that at some point his canceled project could return. This is how Byte was born, a natural heir of this type of six-second clips and that through Twitter he announced his first steps.
“Dear friends, today we bring 6-second loop videos and a new community for people who love them. His name is Byte and he is familiar and new. We hope it resonates in people who feel something is missing. You already know the exercise: load from your camera or use the Byte camera to capture things … explore what the community is watching and loving, see the publications carefully selected by our editors or browse on your own, ”said the creators.

With a forum on its official site and with the links already enabled to download the program on Android and iOS, Byte also promises to have a premium community that pays for certain special features, just at a time when the Chinese Tik Tok app is sweeping through the influencers and youth.
Byte owners added in their official publications that, “very soon, we will present a pilot version of our partner program that we will use to pay the creators. byte celebrates creativity and community, and compensating creators is an important way we can support both. Stay tuned for more information. ”
