Facebook rolled out its self destructing messaging app Slingshot globally in June. Today, the social network is updating the app with ‘reactions’, a feature that enables users to reply with a reaction to photos without having to first reply with another photo.

We’ve heard (and seen) how much people love reacting to shots in their feed. So why should the fun end after one reaction? Today we’re excited to announce that reactions to reactions are here! Starting today, you can reply to any reaction with a photo, video or text.

said Facebook in a company blog post.

The latest version of the app allows you to respond with a photo, video, or just text.  Users can now exchange an unlimited number of reaction messages. Facebook also made some performance improvements, letting you snap pics quicker among other small fixes. In addition to the reactions to reactions feature, Facebook also added a “My People” feature that shows other Slingshot friends. This displays friends from your contact as well as Facebook in a list form.

Instagram rolled out its photo and video messaging app Bolt in selected countries earlier this week.

You can download the Slingshot update from Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
