Microsoft continues to expand the media app library for the Xbox One and today owners of the game console will become the first to download an official Vine app that's not been designed for a smartphone.

Yes, the act of watching brief video clips can now be watched natively on a big screen television with this new Vine app. Microsoft says:

"This is the first Vine viewing experience built specifically for the TV, giving you access to funny, quirky, artistic, creative Vines directly in your living room. 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 favorite games or whatever you're watching."

What do you think of Vine breaking free from the small smartphone and into the big screen with this new app?
