Amazon tipped to be working on a messaging app

Whether we want another messaging app or not, it looks like we’re getting one. Amazon is reportedly working on its own service and they’re calling it “Anytime by Amazon.” The company is sending out surveys to its customers about the service to find out what features are important to them. The app will supposedly use your Amazon account as your login and it’ll be encrypted. Anytime will supposedly have mobile and desktop clients and might include things like being able to make reservations and listen to music from within the app.

iMCO Watch is the newest Alexa-powered smartwatch

You may or may not have heard of CoWatch, an Amazon Alexa-powered smartwatch that launched last year. The device just got rebranded and is now called iMCO Watch. It just launched in India via Yerha.com, an Indian e-commerce startup. The iMCO Watch also brings Alexa’s voice assistant feature to the wearable and will let you do what most smartwatches do, such as asking for the weather or controlling your smart home. It can be activated via a crown button on the side of the device or tapping on the Alexa icon on the display. You don’t get voice activation here, though. It runs on Cronologics OS, which is an Android-based operating system. It works for both Android and iOS but with the computing happening on the watch or the cloud, you really don’t need a phone for it to work all the time.

The iMCO Watch is made with mostly stainless steel and it sports a ceramic ring. The smartwatch also comes with water and dust resistance. It has a 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, and a slew of sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and heart rate sensor. It comes in Mineral Silver and Carbon Black for ₹14,990 (around CA$300).

Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ album makes its way to most streaming services

After a week of Jay-Z’s 4:44 being a Tidal and Sprint exclusive, the new album comes to most major streaming services. We say most as Spotify is missing from the list of services it’s available in. We’re not surprised as the hip-hop mogul pulled his catalog from the service a few months ago. He seems to be in better terms with Apple as 4:44 is available on both iTunes and Apple Music. The album is also available on Google Play Music and Amazon Music. Some of the services even have “The Story of O.J.” animated video.

An Amazon patent won’t let you check online prices from rival retailers inside stores

With Amazon’s push into brick-and-mortar stores, it seems they want to stop you from buying products online (at least from rivals) while you’re inside their establishments. The online retailer has been granted a patent for “controlling online shopping within a physical store or retail location.” So, if you use the in-store Wi-Fi at an Amazon-owned store, your browsing will be monitored and blocked if you visit a competing retailer’s site. It’s basically like a firewall for accessing specific URLs or web addresses. One way to circumvent that, though, is by using your mobile data to do some comparison shopping. It is a patent so there isn’t any way to find out whether Amazon will use the technology yet.
