Amazon - Developing new Messaging App called Anytime

Amazon Anytime features Amazon To Unveil New Messaging App

Now, with the latest reports, Amazon appears to be venturing into the messaging space, as it is expected to take on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger with a new app called Anytime. On top of that, it will allow users to "encrypt important messages like bank account details". The new app will let users send messages, voice and video calls and will also let one share photos. Called Anytime, the app will reportedly be available across iOS, Android and even desktop, and will combine features of numerous other most-used apps.

Being an online shopping giant, Amazon inevitably has plans to integrate shopping into Anytime.

As it continues to expand its own ecosystem, Amazon may have a new messaging app on the horizon.


However, one area where Amazon could beat its rivals is with an ad-free service.

Anytime will have standard messaging features such as encryption, video support, audio support and stickers. The name of the app is "Anytime". Case in point - messaging tools.

Candy Crush requests on Facebook are annoying and Amazon's messaging app could add to this sorrow. The number of such apps are increasing day by day and many businesses have also started engaging with their customers and started branding their products on such apps. The service has plenty of features which might speak to all users, and the more optimistic ones say it will be worthy of competing with any existent social platform. Amazon's personal assistant Alexa may also be integrated in some way. Hence, to differentiate, Amazon's messaging app will likely have all the most useful and popular features, explained AFTV News. Earlier this year, it announced Chime, a video conferencing app for its business-minded users, created to rival with existing services such as Skype for Business or WebEx.
