Amazon may launch its own messaging app, AnyTime

Days after their 3rd successful annual Prime Day sale, reports have surfaced that Amazon might be working towards a new messaging app called Anytime.

US-based e-commerce company, Amazon is reportedly trying to launch a messaging service app, which could be an all-in-one feature service.

Anytime appears to be more ambitious product and it seems it is created to compete other messaging apps like Facebook messenger and WhatsApp. Users will be able to encrypt important messages that carries their personal information like their credit or debit card information and other band account details. The Anytime app will supposedly allow people to communicate with each other without the need of phone numbers which is the primary criteria if you are using services like Whatsapp and Viber.

If Amazon does launch a messaging app, it would be the first time the company delves properly into the social messaging space.

The news comes in the wake of reports that Amazon was considering a takeover of Slack, a corporate messaging and software start-up. You will also be able to share photos with your friends by @-mentioning them, and even apply filters and effects to them. Amazon also sees the service as a way for shoppers to interact with companies.

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

It seems that Amazon is trying hard to enter social media industry.

The app could come with GIFs, stickers and emojis support which is common in nearly every popular chat app. Earlier this year, Amazon announced a corporate-focused service called Chime that allows businesses to hold online meetings and video conferences. Maybe you use WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook Messenger, GroupMe, Skype, Snapchat or even Signal. Amazon Anytime is said to have basic functions such as text messaging, voice calls and videos calls, but the way in which you message someone is a little different to some of its rivals.
