According to AFTV news, Amazon has been using a survey to get gauge customer response to a new app currently in development.

The new app is a service called Anytime which is a full-featured, standalone messaging app for smartphones, tablets, PCs and smart watches.  Anytime is designed to let people chat with text and video, send each other fun photos with filters, play games and engage with other Amazon services like music and food ordering (and other shopping), and interact with businesses.

This is not Amazon’s first attempt at such an endeavor as the company recently launch a communications service earlier this year call  Chime.  Chime is also includes both messaging and videoconferencing features. The app is built in part using technology that Amazon picked up through its acquisition of talent and technology from a few different startups, including videoconferencing app Biba and meeting productivity service Do.
