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

According to a new report, Amazon is working on its very own cross-platform messaging app.

According to a recent report from AFTV News, Amazon is looking to join the 3rd-party messaging landscape, with an app called Anytime in the works. We don't know. It will offer encryption, voice and video call functionality, sticks, easier group chats, and more.

Will be "private and secure" by encrypting important messages, such as bank accounts.

Under development as "Anytime", Amazon's rumoured take on messaging sounds rather similar to Facebook's 1.2-billion users Messenger app.

Scattered storms are possible later today as well, but I don't expect anything close to what we're seeing early this morning. Those storms could produce large hail, damaging wind gusts and very heavy rainfall resulting in additional flash flooding.

With messaging apps red hot, Amazon has chose to throw its two cents into the fire according to Amazon focused AFTV News. Stay tuned for more news. The feature would allow for text, video, and photo messaging, and would also integrate games, the report says. Sharing such details would be important in this kind of app, especially because since it's from Amazon.

The site also uploaded an image about Amazon's expected platform. Recently, the company launched messaging and calling features for all Alexa devices, notes Macrumors. Named Anytime, the new app boasts of seamless messaging and video conferencing service that can be reached out from smartphones, tablets, PCs or even smart watches. The carousel of ephemeral selfies and photos from the past 24-hours has become a staple of messaging apps over the past year so it's likely Anytime will come with its own interpretation. If that tech giant can't make a dent, it's even less clear how Amazon thinks it can.

One of the more curious features surrounding Anytime is that it will reportedly not require individual users to be mapped to a specific phone number.

Facebook - having previously made smartphone users install the separate Messenger app to use the service - are set to start pushing adverts on them soon.
