Amazon Is Developing Its Own Messaging App

Posted July 17, 2017

According to some recent reports, the giant company Amazon, mostly specialized in e-commerce, is working on developing a new messaging app. According to one customer who has taken a survey from Amazon, it appears as though the app is pretty much completed and is called "Anytime by Amazon".

The services will allow users to encrypt important messages like bank account details and ID proof numbers.

The app will also let users reach their friends, without a phone number, using just their name.

The app will be meant specially for end consumers and may also have an option of communicating through text messages as well as video chats, a report by AFTV News said on July 13. Amazon also sees the service as a way for shoppers to interact with companies. This messaging app is going to integrate basic features like messaging, video, voice, shopping, etc. This is somewhat of a higher level of security in the forthcoming Anytime app. 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.

Any Delay in Brexit Negotiations With UK Impossible - EU Parliament President
Earlier last week, British PM Theresa May's govt published a draft law to formally end Britain's membership of the EU. At a one-day session in June both sides agreed on a broad timetable for the talks.

Further, coming as it does from Amazon, there, of course, will be built-in support for an ordering of stuff from the in-house retail channel in the most convenient manner. We're not exactly sure how Amazon would go about this, but if it works it could vastly improve the biggest barrier most messaging apps face: active users. This is a feature that some or none of the internet messaging apps are offering.

The site also uploaded an image about Amazon's expected platform.

Going by the report, the messaging service will have features such as the ability to make voice and video calls and photo sharing with filters, masks, etc.
