Amazon is rumoured to be working on a messaging app named Anytime. This was first reported when a customer received a survey regarding the features for the app. According to the survey, the app supports voice and video calls along with normal text messages.
The app also allows sending of images, videos, GIFs, and emoticons. The survey denotes that the app might be highly customizable with options to add filters and special effects to photos and videos along with changing the colour and background of the conversations.
However, the best feature of the app is that it supports many services from Amazon like shopping, making reservations and also to check the status of your orders. 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.
Unlike popular messaging apps like Viber or Whatsapp, Anytime does not require your phone number to initiate a conversation. You can just use the name of a person to start chatting. Which means you can connect with your friends and shop or order something together.
After Alexa Calling, this could be Amazon’s next big take on communication. The app would be available across all platforms like Android, iOS, desktop and even smart watches so that you could chat with your friends seamlessly.
Well, it seems pretty good that Amazon is expanding its business reach to software side also. After some good hardware devices and AI like Alexa, now its time for Amazon to conquer the smart phones too with its apps.
How many of you are excited about Anytime?
