Amazon Working on New Standalone Messaging App Called "Anytime"

Now Amazon eyes messaging app

E-commerce giant Amazon appears to be planning for its own full-featured, standalone messaging app called Anytime.

The app was mentioned in a customer survey that sought information on what consumers want most out of a messaging app.

Images taken from the survey suggest Anytime will use secure encryption and work on a number of desktop and mobile platforms. It will allow people to do a world of activities with just their username as identity.

It has also gained a lot of success in its Alexa-powered echo speakers.

In the past few months, the top provider has been busy making inroads into the messaging and communications market.

But there is one new example of users willing to abandon a service for a better choice, and that's with Snapchat users switching to Instagram. This essentially means that either you'll have to choose a username or you'll be connecting on the app from other social media like Facebook, Google+ or Twitter. The idea of this app is to let users shop from Amazon, so privacy will be a major concern.

Apple's messaging app now dominates both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store charts.

However, there's nothing shocking about Amazon working on its messaging app considering that the company already runs a video-conferencing app named Chime that caters to the business users.

Messages will be encrypted to provide private conversations - a feature in Facebook-owned Whatsapp that has been heavily criticised by Prime Minister Theresa May in the government's efforts to crack down on crime and tackle terrorism.

Now, it looks like Amazon could be venturing into the booming messaging space sometime soon. Also, it would permit users to apply various filters on their photos. This messaging app is going to integrate basic features like messaging, video, voice, shopping, etc. The company has several reasons why a messenger makes sense: users could share and discuss products, engage together with Amazon's growing list of services, and contact customer support quickly and easily.

There is no need for numbers and users will be able to reach other people by typing in their name.
