Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Testing A Messaging App Called Anytime
According to a report from AFTV News, Amazon is working on a stand-alone chat app dubbed Anytime and has even began surveying its customers. Anytime see, s to be a more ambitious messaging platform, one created to contend against othermessaging apps in the market such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, Viber and many more. Amazon says users will be able "encrypt important messages" at a higher level of security, while voice call and audio call will also presumably be private and secure.
Reaching all friends and family using their name, without needing their phone numbers.
The username will be the core element of the Amazon Anytime app as it will allow individuals to connect to each other. Google every couple of years comes out with a new messaging or social networking product that fails to make an impact on the market.
Filters, special effects and masks for video calls. If you have them as a friend on one of the apps you've connected, it'll ping them via that app, keeping everything in one place while allowing you to communicate across platforms. There are countless other companies that have carved niches for themselves in the mobile messaging arena. Maybe you use WhatsApp, iMessage, FacebookMessenger, GroupMe, Skype, Snapchat or even Signal. Reportedly rivaling FacebookMessenger, Amazon Anytime will feature much of the same features as others, but with encryption, for good measure. This messaging app is going to integrate basic features like messaging, video, voice, shopping, etc.
The site also uploaded an image about Amazon's expected platform.
If Amazon really has to kill it, then it has to think about getting into the mindset of customers. The messages will include the use of GIFs, stickers and emoji. Amazon also launched a communications service called Chime in February with messaging and videoconferencing support.
