New Delhi: Facebook is developing video app Slingshot to take on rival Snapchat in the video-chat app market, according to published reports.


The Singshot app allows users to send short video messages, and is said to resemble TapTalk, a new video-messaging app from Berlin-based Wit Dot Media released last month, in which users tap or hold a contact's profile picture to instantly send a photo or short video, which can be viewed only once by the recipient.

The app will likely stand alone from texting app Facebook Messenger as part of Zuckerberg's strategy of unbundling the group's social network into standalone mobile services.

It seems like the new app will be stand alone from texting app Facebook Messenger.

Facebook has earlier attempted to take on Snapchat with Poke in December 2012, which however failed to mimic Snapchat's popularity, and Facebook removed it from the App Store this month.
