How Amazon plans to differentiate, however, is with group messaging.

The company has begun surveying customers about the service, to determine which features are most important to users. With "Anytime", users will also be able to chat with businesses to make reservations, check on their orders, and even shop, as per the leaked promotional image.

Amazon is reportedly working on a new dedicated messaging app for iOS and Android called "Anytime". In other words, Facebook's Messenger, Apple's iMessage and other such related apps is set to receive a major competition. We are already accustomed to using popular services like Facebook, Whatsapp, Snapchat, WeChat and others, however, rumors are afloat that there will be a new entrant in this already crowded market.

And, on Sunday, that was all but confirmed with just over 24 hours before the July 17 deadline to sign franchise tagged players. Within the transition tag is a player option to sign a one-year deal for a 20 percent raise with his original team.

"Photo sharing also seems to be a major feature of the app, with the screenshot suggesting the app will feature [email protected], fast photo sharing and video chat" as well as photo and video filters.

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.

This will be a full-featured standalone messaging app for smartphones, tablets, PCs and smart watches. This will be a problem if nobody you know uses the new Amazon messaging app. There is no clarity as to when the service will be launched. However, it's not at all surprising to hear that the company might be making a messaging app of its own. Amazon will take some time to make this app available for public.
