The e-commerce titan has already made progress into the messaging and communications market in recent months. It also has the ability to keep chats private and encrypt important information like bank account details.

If at all Amazon decides to launch it in India, then I am sure it is going to have UPI integrated into its system. However, it's not at all surprising to hear that the company might be making a messaging app of its own.
