Amazon Anytime will be a messaging app, could launch soon

Amazon to develop its own mobile messaging app According to a report by AFTV News the retail giant has begun surveying its customers about what features are most important to them

As per the reports, Amazon is working on this new Chat app AnyTime which would be available for Android and iOS smartphone platforms and Desktop version as well. AFTVnews reports that select customers have received surveys on the app, including details on its specific features. This means it should come packing most features found in now available apps along with its own unique take on how users should send messages over the web.

The launch of Anytime wouldn't be Amazon's first messaging app having released Chime earlier this year that is attempting to rival Slack in the work messaging stakes.

There will also be a feature for location sharing, simultaneous music listening, food ordering and bill split.Amazon says app will also support business chat. Users would be able to call (audio and video) other individuals or groups, contact businesses to order products or make reservations. Also, it would permit users to apply various filters on their photos.

Woman found with 27 contact lenses lodged in one eye
Upon closer inspection, she realized that she'd stumbled upon 17 contact lenses stuck together. "She was quite shocked". However, one doctor is now urging contact lens-users to not get complacent about taking them out and replacing them.

Images taken from the survey shows Amazon aims to secure and encrypt the service in multiple ways. Amazon is also pushing its Alexa digital assistants on smartphones, and the HTC U11 was the latest one to get the Alexa. 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.

According to AFTV News, the company has conducted surveys about the new app.

Amazon didn't forget about the main issue of privacy, so it promises that all chats and activities will remain private. This could mean, we assume, that your Anytime profile would be an extension of your existing Amazon account.
