Facebook releases first update to Slingshot

Facebook updated its photo-messaging app Slingshot on last week. It is the first time the social media giant has added new features to this app since it was launched. The new feature enables users to react to reaction messages.

Before this addition, users could view a message only with a single reaction and did not have to send their own reaction first. The app retains the original feature of unlocking new slings with replies. But now users can exchange reaction messages without any specific limit.

This does not seem to be a big addition to the app, which has not gained popularity among users. But it may prove to be significant especially because several users were skeptical about the Sling’s shot-for-shot dynamic. So sending a reaction to a reaction may be a game-changer for this app.

The new update has improved the procedure of adding friends with a tab called “My People”. This new tab display you entire friend list from Facebook as well the contacts on your phone as one list.

Users are also able to send texts to contacts that don’t have this app.

Facebook has been making a conscious effort to develop mobile-products. They have been trying to launch their own version of Snapchat. As we reported on this blog before, Instagram’s Bolt (a photo-messaging app) was launched in three countries.
