Have you remembered Facebook Snapchat app ‘Slingshot’??? Less than a year after it terminated, Facebook is back with another app that is built similar to Snapchat. The Mark Zuckerberg-owned Facebook have launched ‘Flash’ a Snapchat like camera app.
Today’s messaging is gradually changing from text-based to photo-based. One of the major differences between Flash and Snapchat killer is this app is being targeted especially at the users who have limited access to mobile data services or having less connectivity.
Mark Zuckerberg said about the app, “In most social apps today, a text box is still the default way we share. Soon, we believe a camera will be the main way that we share.”
But this time, Facebook has tried something different. This new Flash app was built up by Facebook’s growth team specially designed for the areas with WIFI connectivity is less, and the network speed is low. Facebook boosts up the Flash with less than 25mb in size or roughly one-third of Snapchat Android app on Google’s Pixel smartphone.

The company has already updated its broadcasting feature with the Snapchat’s selfie where users are allowed to apply real-time digital effects while live streaming. Currently, the Android version of Facebook Flash app was launched in Brazil on 8th November 2016.
Facebook hasn’t made any official announcement about the global launch, but it will be soon roll out in India as well. Through this Flash app, it will become easier to communicate with your friends, requires less data and occupies less memory in your phone.
