    After a spurned attempt to acquire Snapchat for $3 billion last year, Facebook is gearing up to launch its own ephemeral messaging app, internally codenamed "Slingshot". The app, which is said to have a "simple and speedy user interface" (not unlike Snapchat) is designed to take on Snapchat with short video and photo messages that disappear after one viewing. The app has reportedly been in the works for several months, and might launch as early as this month.

    You can expect to get it for WP8.1 when everyone else on every other platform has stopped using the app.

    Sounds like a terrible App. Send a return pic just to open the one sent to you?

    A bit weird first, but I think they worked on this app and it worth it. On Android and iPhone.
    Here's a The Verge link talking bout this, it sounds like a news feed with push notification

    Think they are trying to get as close to the snapchat name as possible yet not close enough to cause a law suit. What else is new.
