Amazon Is Prepping To Launch A Standalone 'Anytime' Messaging App Soon

Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Testing A Messaging App Called Anytime

According to a new report from AFTVnews, Amazon is working a messaging app called Anytime that carries a strong focus on group communication. According to the survey, the app supports voice and video calls along with normal text messages. Unlike standalone messaging apps like WhatsApp and Viber, Anytime would let you reach your friends by using their names instead of their phone number.

The social network giant has said they are testing advertising on the Facebook Messenger app, which has 1.2billion monthly users across mobile devices like the iPhone and Android smartphones.

It turns out that e-commerce giant Amazon has once again made a decision to rival social media platforms by introducing its very own messaging app.

While a multitude of different apps cater to different needs with the likes of Uber, WhatsApp and Deliveroo, WeChat has managed to reduce all of these services into a single app that simply doesn't exist outside of China.

The main aim behind this AnyTime chat app is to bring people more closer to eachother. With "Anytime", users will also be able to chat with businesses to make reservations, check on their orders, and even shop, as per the leaked promotional image. 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.




Amazon Anytime messaging app will allow video as well as calling services.

The e-commerce giant Amazon is, allegedly, readying its new messaging service called Anytime.

There can also be options to personalise your chats by adding color codes to conversations or giving nicknames to friends.
