Amazon set to launch all-in-one messenger app 'Anytime' soon

Amazon set to launch all-in-one messenger app 'Anytime' soon

The Anytime app is now under testing and the company is also conducting surveys to get feedback from Amazon service users, AFTV News reported citing one of the Amazon customer, who took the survey.

Anytime appears to be more ambitious product and it seems it is created to compete other messaging apps like Facebook messenger and WhatsApp. It is also said to have encryption facilities so you don't have to worry about your personal details like the bank account or address. Amazon has always lagged on the social side, and this might be a signal that it's re-entering the space. The online retailer is working on its own stand-alone chat app called Anytime, according to Amazon Fire TV News. After a lot of research, Amazon feels they have perfected the flawless messaging service and have confirmed it is almost ready.

E-commerce giant Amazon is apparently toying with the idea of introducing its own messaging app. That means, Anytime will be allowed to link to existing social media platforms and messaging apps.

Messaging apps are in vogue these days. In other words, for facebook messenger, Apple's iMessage, and other messaging apps it is going to be a great competitor.
