According to Amazon-focused site AFTVNews, Amazon has been asking its users about the most important features for its messaging app. It's unclear how far along the new service is, but one customer said the survey seemed to imply it was a ready product. This essentially means that either you'll have to choose a username or you'll be connecting on the app from other social media like Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.

Are you surprised that Amazon is making a move on the messaging app market?

There's also support for location sharing, simultaneous music listening, food ordering, and bill split. According to one customer who has taken a survey from Amazon, it appears as though the app is pretty much completed and is called "Anytime by Amazon". Also, it would permit users to apply various filters on their photos.

Amazon's personal assistant Alexa may also be integrated in some shape or form.

Messenger apps, be it text or multimedia, have become the main form of telecommunication medium for people to exchange pleasantries and even conduct business transactions.

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

Like Snapchat, the service will keep chats private.

The service will work with smartphones, tablets, PCs and smart watches i.e.it is going to be a full 360-degree solution to your messaging needs.

Anytime by Amazon certainly sounds very enticing and some of the features sound too good to be true. It is being assumed that the tech-giant will probably launch the app by the end of this year.

Called Amazon Chime, the app uses on-click dialling and boasts noise-cancelling technology for clear conversations - and can be used on Windows, iOS and Android devices.
