Microsoft has published its own 'ephemeral messaging' app WindUp, offering Windows Phone users its take on Snapchat.
Spotted by Neowin, Microsoft Research has released WindUp for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, giving users pretty much the same time-capped messages that Snapchat has become famous for, but without the app's newer live video chat feature.
According to the app's description
, the app lets Windows Phone users "create and share fun, temporary messages and media with friends", including pictures, videos, audio snippets, and text. Like Snapchat, the message expires according to a time limit set by the user.
