Now, Amazon eyes messaging app

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

The company has started a survey to get feedback from the consumers, about the features of the new messaging app, which the company is reportedly working on. A leaked promotional teaser for the service indicates that it will also feature picture sharing. Now it looks like Amazon might be venturing into the messaging space with a new app called Anytime. They've previously enabled messaging and calls through their Alexa app, and already offer a communication service called Chime for enterprise users. Known as Anytime, the app could supposedly handle SMS, video calling, voice calls, stickers, games, photos, and oh, so much more.

The e-commerce and cloud computing giant apparently is developing an app that would take on services provided by Facebook Inc., Apple Inc. and Google Inc. It also has the ability to keep chats private and encrypt important information like bank account details.

United Kingdom : 27 contact lenses found in woman's eye
With the discovery, the patient's cataract surgery was pushed back as she had a higher risk of contracting endophthalmitis . After she found that her eye has been harbouring 27 contact lenses, she was just as shocked as the doctors were.


The biggest hurdle of any new messaging service is getting people to use it when no one they know is using it. Its focus is on the standard text, video, and voice, but with a few more twists of their own. Based on the images I've been provided, Anytime by Amazon seems to be an all-in-one feature rich service that could even rival social networks. None of this has been officially confirmed by Amazon at this point in time. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise if the company suddenly drops a standalone messaging app. Further, it's believed that Anytime will let you reach your friends just by using their name (without the need of their phone numbers).
