Amazon could be working on a messaging app

The company has started a survey to get feedback from the consumers, about the features of the new messaging app, which the company is reportedly working on. The new service called "Anytime" will run on smartphones, tablets, PCs and smart watches. For instance, the app will feature end-to-end encryption, audio/video calling support and stickers will also be part of the pack. The leaked image, provided by AFTVnews, indicates that the upcoming Anytime messaging app from Amazon will allow users to keep their chats private and encrypt important messages.

Amazon hasn't revealed a launch date for the app yet. Currently, WhatsApp is the most widely preferred chat app and it requires your phone number to run. Instead, everything is handled with usernames and Twitter-like replies. Which means that, in a group, a person can refer to someone by mentioning their @username.

The report also talked about a music option that would let users listen to music on the app.

Chat with business by making reservations, checking in on orders and shopping.

While a multitude of different apps cater to different needs with the likes of Uber, WhatsApp and Deliveroo, WeChat has managed to reduce all of these services into a single app that simply doesn't exist outside of China.




Amazon might soon unveil a brand-new messaging platform. Chime is also includes both messaging and videoconferencing features. Anytime by Amazon seems to be an all-in-one feature rich service that could even rival social networks. At this point in time, no additional details are available.

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

This is it for now, folks.

In May Amazon's Echo allowed users to place and receive calls and messages from one Alexa-enabled device to another using voice commands.

Whatever Amazon is aiming for is quite bold, and could bring forth a change in how users interact and share content on the web.
