Now, Amazon eyes messaging app
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.
Sen. Warner introduces changes to the Affordable Care Act
That means just one more GOP senator coming out against the motion to proceed would stop the bill , as written, in its tracks. And it eliminates Obamacare's requirement that commercial insurance policies cover essential benefits, like maternity care.
Skydiver Told Wife He Wasn't Going to Pull Cord
Neither The Daytona Beach News-Journal nor the Orlando Sentinel were able to reach Capotorto's wife for comment. Richards immediately radioed the plane, according to a police report, but Vitantonio, 27, had already jumped.
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).
