Amazon Allegedly Working on Messaging App for iOS and Android Called 'Anytime'

But it looks like Amazon could be preparing their own messaging service, called 'Anytime by Amazon'.

The stand-alone messaging app also provides for tasks that can be done in groups, like playing games, listening to music, and ordering food.

The leading online retail company might take on Facebook's WhatsApp with its own messaging app. Some of the popular instant messaging services apart from WhatsApp are Facebook Messenger, Hangouts, Skype, Viber, iMessage, Google Allo, Hike, WeChat (China) and Telegram. Through this people can chat, share photos, make video calls. These apps introduced in 2016 did not fare up to the expectation in the already competitive market segment.

The app will let people chat with text, filtered photos, and videos.

Case in point: the service claims it will keep chat privates and even allow users to "encrypt important messages like bank account details". It's unclear what that means exactly, but it could mean the app hooks into existing social networks and other messaging services. And Amazon hints that users will be able to reach their friends simply by using their first names.

Would you trust Amazon with a messaging service? Amazon has spent some time carrying out multiple surveys from customers to find out what more the company can bring. It is also focussing on ensuring that privacy of the users who are using this app are safeguarded and is going to bolster all the necessary locks to make a hack proof app says the survey notes.
