According to AFTV News, Amazon has begun surveying customers about the new messaging service to gauge which features are most important them. Users also could apply filters to photos and videos, send stickers and gifs to other users and play games - a set of features that basically just described Facebook Messenger among other messaging apps.

For now, it remains to be unclear if this Amazon Anytime platform will have end-to-end encryption by default as in many other messaging apps.

At the moment, the current #social network offerings have gotten stale, and users are seeking the next best thing. According to AFTVnews report, Amazon is working on an instant messaging app of their own. The name of the app is "Anytime". If that is the case, it might be the most convenient messaging app.

Users would be able to call - both vial audio and video - to other individuals or groups, contact businesses to order products or make reservations.

The report also talked about a music option that would let users listen to music on the app. A leaked promotional teaser for the service indicates that it will also feature picture sharing.
