Amazon may be prepping new messaging app called Anytime

Amid the upsurging popularity of messaging apps, Amazon throws itself into the fray. They now host an online marketplace, a music streaming service, a video streaming service and super fast delivery services.

It seems that Amazon wants to dig its heels in messaging apps and have something of their own. That's especially important because the service will also allow users to chat with businesses, make reservations, and of course, since this is from Amazon, allow users to shop. Amazon is allegedly working on a new messaging platform called Anytime, with reports suggesting the company has already started surveying its customers about potential features.

It is unclear if the service will have end-to-end encryption turned on by default, though according to the report, it will encrypt bank account details. Could Amazon really offer an effective service that could compete with the likes of Facebook? Amazon will take some time to make this app available for public. However, it's not at all surprising to hear that the company might be making a messaging app of its own.
