Amazon Web Services announces Amazon Chime

The service will help companies enhance their video and audio meetings

This week, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced Amazon Chime, a communications service which they claim makes audio and video meetings easier and more efficient.

With Amazon Chime, AWS says that customers can start high-quality video and audio meetings, allowing them to host or join a meeting, chat, and share content and screens with a synchronized experience across desktops, iOS, and Android devices. Amazon Chime calls participants when a meeting starts and no PIN is required for participants to join the meeting.

Through this service, AWS says that attendees have the power to put an end to background noise by muting any noisy line. Amazon Chime offers mobile and desktop apps and keeps meetings and chats synchronized across devices. They also say that users can join meetings from anywhere via Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows apps.

Amazon Chime can be integrated with existing corporate directories and provides IT administrators the ability to manage identities and control access across an organization.

Gene Farrell, Vice President, Enterprise Applications, AWS said:

Most meeting applications or services are hard to use, deliver bad audio and video, require constant switching between multiple tools to do everything they want, and are way too expensive.

Amazon Chime delivers frustration-free meetings, allowing users to be productive from anywhere. And with no ongoing maintenance or management fees, Amazon Chime is a great choice for companies that are looking for a solution to meetings that their employees will love to use.
