Amazon working on its own social network app to compete with Facebook

The giant is reportedly aiming at having its own personal app which will be called Anytime, meant to rival the Facebook Messenger.

According to some recent reports, the giant company Amazon, mostly specialized in e-commerce, is working on developing a new messaging app. The app will focus on video calls, text and voice messaging, and photo sharing. Amazon is also promising privacy and security of your messages with the option to encrypt those portions that you'd prefer to keep private.

This messaging app will let users chat with friends, enjoy videos and play games at the same time just like Facebook.

AFTV News claims that Amazon's messaging app will only be successful if plenty of other services agree to enter into a partnership with it.

One of the big positives is that it doesn't rely on users knowing each other's phone numbers, like with Whatsapp and others.

A host of other companies are also competing in the messaging market, all with their own take on message.

It seems that Amazon is trying hard to enter social media industry. The report adds that users will be able to message businesses, make reservations, and - of course - shop.

Amazon Anytime messaging app will allow video as well as calling services.
