Amazon is Reportedly Readying a New Messaging Platform Called ‘Anytime’

Gadget & Techology
SOURCE:macrumors.comAmazon is reportedly working on bringing a new mobile messaging platform to the table, according to customer survey details obtained by AFTVnews. The chat service for iOS, Android, and desktop is said to be called "Anytime" and will include typical messaging features like encryption, video and voice calling, but with some novel touches added to the mix that suggest social network-style aspirations for the app. For example, it looks as if Anytime users will only need to use a name – as opposed to a phone number, à la WhatsApp – to link themselves and invite others to the service, although its not entirely clear how this will work. There's also talk of Twitter-like @ mentions to involve users in conversation threads or to share photos. Elsewhere in Amazon's custome
