Rooms, the topic-specific chatroom app launched by the social networking giant in October, has gained a new Explore section that enables you to discover and preview new and interesting rooms and join each one you like with just one tap.
In a blog post announcing the new Rooms feature, Facebook notes:
Over the past month and a half, our community has created tens of thousands of rooms ranging from developers emulating old video games on modern smartphones, to college fraternities, depression support, and Kendama tricks. We have been wonderfully surprised by the breadth of topics that are connecting people. To our creators and moderators: thank you for providing welcoming places for people from around the world to join.
Rooms has also been updated with bug fixes and performance enhancements for faster video playback.
The app was previously updated last month with support for push notifications, custom sounds, and an activity dashboard.
Most notably, Slingshot now lets you swipe to easily switch between your device’s front camera for selfies and its rear camera for contradictorily called “fronties.”
Slingshot, by the way, also has its own Explore section for discovering and following “awesome creatives.”
The app was updated to version 2.0 just a couple of weeks ago with a revamped design along with a number of new features.
