It hasn't been long since Facebook first introduced us to its Snapchat rival Slingshot. The company officially launched its self destructing messaging app Slingshot last week. But now there's more good news to follow up on.
According to reports, the company has announced that the app has now gone global and is available for download worldwide for Android(Jelly Bean and KitKat) and iPhone (iOS 7).
"Since we launched last week, we've heard from lots of people around the world who are excited to give Slingshot a try. Starting today, we're expanding our initial launch and making Slingshot available internationally," the team wrote on its official blog.
The app, which launched last week, was only available for Android devices. And although the iOS version was released at the same time as that of the Android one, it was pulled down for some unknown reason. Nonetheless, it was anyway expected that the service would go live on App Store once again.
Facebook's Slingshot will look to offer features similar to Snapchat, but in a different way. And while you can send photos and funny effects to your friends, they will only be visible when that friend sends you back another "sling" of hisn or her own. And the same is applicable for videos.
