Facebook's Slingshot is no longer US-exclusive, now available worldwide
Do you remember Slingshot, Facebook's newest app that allows you to send self-desctructing photos/videos to your contacts and/or Facebook friends and is suspiciously similar to Snapchat? The app got launched as a USA-exclusive for Android and iOS roughly a week ago, but it seems that a great number of international users have expressed their desire to try the app since its initial launch. It seems that Facebook has listened carefully to the wishes of said users, as it just made Slingshot available outside the USA.

"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 behind Slingshot revealed.

As we previously said, Slingshot allows you to send self-destructing videos and photos to your contacts and Facebook friends. However, there's something that sets apart Facebook's app from the likes of Snapchat. That'd be the tit-for-tat strategy that Slingshot employs - if someone wants to view the message you've sent them, they have to reply with another message first. After the messages in question get viewed, they are gone for good.

If you are one of those eager to check out Slingshot, you can go ahead and snatch it from one of the download links below.
