Amazon developing its own new Instant Messaging App, Anytime

Is Amazon working on a new messaging app called Anytime?

Adding to the likes of Google and Facebook is another tech-giant Amazon, reportedly working on launching its own messaging app called "Anytime". The app will focus on video calls, text and voice messaging, and photo sharing.

Users will be able to search for people by typing their name, doing away with the need for a phone number in the same way Facebook messenger works. The entrance of Amazon in social media industry is definitely an alarm for other messaging app players. It would be interesting to see how Amazon will be able to take on the incumbent messaging apps including WhatsApp, Snapchat, and Messenger.

Event Hubs also mentioned a character page on the official CFN website with a browser tab that reads "ABIGAIL Abigail, who debuted in Final Fight in 1989, is based on King Diamond, a heavy metal musician.

"Everything you've always wanted in a messaging app - and a whole more", the company says in the photo.

There are now 167 wildfires burning in British Columbia. "The Red Cross has registered approx 4,100 families to date". Some have young kids and they don't want to take the chance".

Along with these official upgrades it's also thought that more new features could be launching soon including the option to send and play YouTube videos within the app. But Instagram also had an existing user base and promotional links with its parent company Facebook as well, which it could use to grow the service. The fact that Amazon created these graphics and details and also put Anytime in a survey shows that the company is at least interested in getting into the messaging game, though. It's toying with the idea of allowing users to chat with businesses, make reservations, check orders and even shop via the app.

Amazon had unveiled Chime, a messaging and videoconferencing platform for enterprise users earlier this year along with the introduction of voice calling and messaging features for Alexa-powered devices. By contrast, WhatsApp features end-to-end encryption, which makes sure only the sender and the recipient can read messages going in and out - not anybody in between.
