Between acquiring grocery stores, and delivering us precious cargo via a drone hive, Amazon is ready to take over the world one invention at a time.
This time, they’re looking to take over the messaging app market. According to a report from AFTV News, Amazon is working on their own stand-alone messaging app called Anytime that has the potential to “rival social networks.”
“Amazon has begun surveying customers about a new messaging service to gauge which features are most important to users. It’s unclear how far along the new service is, but one customer said the survey seemed to imply it was a ready product.
Based on the images I’ve been provided, Anytime by Amazon seems to be an all-in-one feature rich service that could even rival social networks. The focus seems to be messaging, including voice and video calls, but there’s also mention of photo sharing with @mentions, as well as filters for photos and video with “special effects and masks.” Anytime will also provide tasks that can be done in groups, like playing games, listening to music, and ordering food.”
I personally cannot wait for Amazon to take over every aspect of our life. Hell, as long as it’s not Facebook…
