Among the new features is the ability to add music from your phone's library directly to video clips, an easier tool for creating “perfect loops” with your videos' audio, including a beat finder that shows where to end a clip to make it loop perfectly with the beginning of the audio clip, a list of featured artists and songs that all users can use in their clips including Avicii, ODESZA, and Migos, and a music discovery tool that shows viewers the name and artist of a song playing in a video clip. 

Given Vine's history of popularizing songs like Fetty Wap's “My Way” and Kendrick Lamar's “m.A.A.d city”  through instantly sharable videos, these new music tools are sure to help make Vine the music-discovery tool it has the potential to be. Read more about these new features over on Vine's blog.
