Facebook Officially Releases ‘Slingshot’ for iOS & Android To Compete With Snapchat

After being leaked and pulled back a while ago, Facebook has finally released ‘Slingshot’ to compete with Snapchat.

Slingshot lets you quickly share moments—little and big—with lots of people at once. Shoot a photo or video of what you’re up to and sling it to a bunch of friends. They won’t be able to see your shot until they sling something back. Tap on a shot to react, or simply swipe it away.

• Stay in touch: Capture photos and videos of moments you want to share with friends
• Go shot for shot: To unlock new shots, first you have to sling something back
• Enjoy it while it lasts: Once you swipe a shot away, it’ll no longer be viewable
• Send a quick reply: After unlocking a shot, respond with your reaction
• Get creative: Express yourself with captions and drawings
• Look when you want: View unlocked shots later if you’re busy


Slingshot is not available to all countries yet so you can try checking it on your respective app stores.

Slingshot; iOS: FREE
