Amazon Anytime Messaging App
Amazon Anytime messaging app will offer a seamless chatting and high-quality calling experience to its users and also engage them with other Amazon services like music and food ordering (and other shopping), and interact with businesses.
The new messaging app will apparently allow people to communicate with each other without using phone numbers which is the primary criteria if you’re using apps like Viber or Whatsapp. The Anytime app by Amazon will enable you to reach all your friends just by using their name without having to use their phone numbers. You only need to use Twitter style @ mentions to bring people into conversations or share photos with filters. It will also have a video calling feature which would allow its users to have special effects and masks. All you need to do is just use @ before the name and start sharing photos, videos, and texts more instantly within the app.
Moving further, Amazon Anytime messaging app will offer standard features like GIFs, stickers, and emojis to conversations, encryption of chats, and the privacy settings. Amazon will provide more security to your chats and account so no one can easily access your conversations or hack your account. The icing on the cake will be its ability to avail other Amazon services like listening to music, ordering food, making reservations, and of course shopping within the app.
Most notably, Anytime could be particularly useful on the Echo Show, which provides a camera for more feature-rich communication. Anytime by Amazon would work across both the desktop and mobile devices, including Android and iOS.
