Washington: Google is reportedly considering buying auto-destruct photo-sharing app Snapchat, after Facebook's failed attempt at acquiring the company.

According to AllThingsD, sources said that apart from Google, the Chinese consumer Internet company, Tencent, is also trying to acquire Snapchat.

The app, which lets users exchange photos and video that disappear after a few seconds, was approached by Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg for three billion dollars.
