Amazon is working on an all-in-one messaging app in an attempt to rival services such as Facebook and Instagram, according to a new report. The claim comes from AFTV News, which got its hands on slides that describe the proposed service, now called "Anytime", that are being used by the company to survey customers on which features they find most important in a messaging app. Further, the report claims that Amazon'smessaging app will focus mostly on voice and video calls.
In addition to Anytime's standard features, it was mentioned that there would be private chats that allow users to encrypt sensitive messages such as bank details.
Those possible features range from reaching friends using their name rather than phone number, the ability to order food and split bills in a group chat, challenge friends to games, and video chat with masks and filters. This essentially means that either you'll have to choose a username or you'll be connecting on the app from other social media like Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.
We already have numerous messaging apps to choose from, but that that won't stop Amazon from creating its own. Stay tuned for more news.
The report also talked about a music option that would let users listen to music on the app.
Anytime by Amazon is expected to have a desktop and mobile version and will also work across platforms.
After Alexa Calling, this could be Amazon's next big take on communication.
The app could come with GIFs, stickers and emojis support which is common in nearly every popular chat app.
Chat with business by making reservations, checking in on orders and shopping.
The new rollout includes all Alexa-enabled devices, including Amazon's app that gives users access to the virtual assistant on the go.
If Amazon really has to kill it, then it has to think about getting into the mindset of customers.
